The GM group wants to let vehicles communicate with each other in the future. The use of the corresponding technology should be possible in all vehicle classes.
More and more manufacturers are working on so-called vehicle-to-vehicle communication. In addition to DaimlerChrysler and BMW, GM (including Opel, Saab, Chevrolet) is now trying to ensure that cars can warn themselves of dangers using GPS receivers and WLAN technology
This means, for example, that a suitably equipped car recognizes when a second vehicle is driving too close and signals this with flashing taillights. At the same time, those driving too close receive a warning from the system. In addition, "V2V" could warn of a car parked on the road before the driver behind can see it.
According to GM Europe, the test vehicles from Opel, Saab, Chevrolet and Cadillac can communicate with each other over distances of several hundred meters. The use of "V2V" is "conceivable in all vehicle classes".
Other manufacturers are currently testing comparable systems. Several manufacturers are also working together on uniform standards so that vehicles of different brands can warn each other when they are introduced into series production at a later date.
2012 saw a turning point at Mercedes. That was when the new A-Class came onto the market: it was supposed to bring new customers to the brand. That succeeded. Now
Sigmar Gabriel criticized GM after the end of the Astra production in the Opel parent plant. The parent company plays the employees against each other
The cars from BMW and Renault will be able to talk in the future. This is to avoid accidents. This so-called "car-to-car communication"
The German premium manufacturers are fighting doggedly for the leadership position. Which of the three car manufacturers is ultimately ahead of the game depends entirely on
The car of the future is a real chat bag. It not only communicates with other cars, but also with motorcycles or traffic lights. BMW
