Washington Auto Show

With the U.S. DOT news yesterday (announced rule for V2V technology for lightweight vehicles), we’re very close to seeing V2X technology take off on our roadways. V2X communications sensors will become standard like ABS brakes and seatbelts in cars, leaving the camera, radar and Lidar sensors in the dust.

Savari will be giving V2X safety driving demos out of the Gold Lot (where the automotive booths and demos are located). Savari will be featured in the NXP and AT&T booths. In the NXP booth, visitors will be able to learn about V2X technology and Savari will be demonstrating V2V, V2I, and V2P applications on the streets around the Las Vegas Convention Center. In the AT&T booth, visitors will be able to see the industry’s first demo of V2X to V2I to LTE (cloud analysis) and back out to LTE-equipped cars and smartphones. The latter is a solution for communicating roadside safety information to vehicles that are not yet equipped with V2X technology.
