DETROIT – Vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication technology has been named one of the 10 Breakthrough Technologies for 2015 by the MIT Technology Review.
Each year, the organization identifies milestone technologies from the past year that solve difficult problems or create powerful new ways of using technology to make the world better.
GM is a recognized leader in V2V and the first automaker to commit to bringing the technology to market. The 2017 Cadillac CTS will offer the technology, which could mitigate many traffic collisions and reduce traffic congestion by sending and receiving basic safety information such as location, speed and direction of travel between vehicles approaching each other. It will warn drivers and can supplement active safety features, such as forward collision warning, already available on many cars.
