Wall Street Journal’s Lunch Break talks about vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V)

I was on WSJ.com’s LunchBreak with Wendy Bounds today talking vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I).

First the stats:
In 2009 there were 5.5 million crashes and 2.2 million injuries.
users wasted 4.8 billion hours stuck in traffic in 2010 “ nearly one full work week.
3.9 billion gallons of wasted fuel by congestion, accidents and untimed lights.
28% of the countrys GHG emissions is contributed by the transportation sector.

With V2V “ if you come up on a traffic light you will know how long before the light turns red, or green, so that you know whether to slow down or keep going straight thru.

OEMS (car manufacturers) involved “ General Motors, Ford, Volkswagen, Audi, Toyota, Honda, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Toyota

Eight agencies –
Department of Transportation (DOT)
