A car coming too fast

Posted by John Day

John Day V2X (vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure) technology is not quite ready for prime time – or rush hour – but Roger Berg at DENSO International America says progress is being made, and cars could be talking to each other and to the roadway infrastructure, as early as 2015. Berg says the technology is ready, except for a speed bump or two related to spoofing (broadcasting fake messages) and … Read More
