Paul Sakamoto, COO, Savari V2X via DSRC technology at WAS2016

Paul Sakamoto, COO, Savari V2X talked to Lou Ann Hammond, CEO, Driving the Nation at the 2016 Washington Auto show. Savari Products Play a Vital Role in the High-Tech Traffic Management of V2X (vehicle to infrastructure)

Savari’s website says it uses DSRC (Dedicated Short-Range Communications) technology, a medium range wireless communication channel dedicated to cars, to provide communications from Vehicle to either another Vehicle (V2V) or to roadside Infrastructure (V2I). Since inception, Savari has been working with a consortium of USDOT and major automotive manufacturers around the world to bring DSRC technology to commercialization. Savari is the major vendor to the largest V2X Safety Pilot study successfully conducted by the USDOT. Savari is now working with major automotive manufacturers to license its technology into their next generation cars and with cities to install the technology in smartcity projects.

What does this mean for the future of automobiles? Sakamoto explains what we saw at the auto show and how it would benefit all of us in the future.
