Delphi to supply major global OEM with V2X technology; launch in 2016

Delphi Automotive PLC announced that it is bringing to market Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) and Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) communication technology (collectively V2X) that significantly advances driver alerts. The company will supply a major global automaker with the connectivity technology that will allow cars to talk with one another and provide drivers critical traffic information. Global production is targeted for launch in 2016 for the North American market.

Delphi’s wireless vehicle communication technology extends the range of existing advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) functionality. Radio signals transmit traffic data from car to car to alert drivers of potential road hazards; even those beyond the driver’s line of sight or out of the vehicle’s sensor range.

This technology can signal to the driver a number of traffic situations ahead including road condition hazards, road work, emergency vehicle warning, stationary or slow moving vehicles, traffic jams, accidents, as well as traffic signals or signage indicators.

The ability to detect and signal to the driver of danger ahead is a significant leap towards improving driver safety and traffic management. This technology also strategically positions Delphi to help automakers meet potential government regulations related to V2V communications for automated driving.

Delphi already provides vision and radar systems that warn the driver of a potential accident risk around the vehicle or in its path. This may include another car drifting into the driver’s lane or helping the driver maintain a safe distance from the car ahead.

Delphi’s V2V goes a step further by reading radio signals sent from cars that have already detected a traffic situation. This data is then sent to other cars in the vicinity to warn their drivers and provide detailed information about the situation, such as location and duration of a construction zone.

The development output of this system is highly flexible and can be packaged and partitioned in many different ways for other markets and customers.



Let's hope that it will be more Hacker proof than current keyless systems that can be easily hacked.


All this is very interesting,but I wonder if anyone has done a study on what affect a major solar flare would have on the electronics within autos. We know it wipes out the electric grid. Can it burn up, not just disable, auto circuitry?


I should have said temporarily disable in the above entry.
