Toyota to launch 'talking' cars soon

Toyota to launch 'talking' cars soon

The move will deliver enhanced safety benefits to drivers, including increased road safety and efficiency, with better advances in connected- and automated driving systems.

DSRC transmissions enable vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communications-collectively known as V2X. - Picture by Toyota via AFPTOKYO, April 17 - A big part of vehicles becoming truly driverless is them eventually having the capability to communicate with other vehicles in the vicinity and various elements of infrastructure.

The technology will enable cars to send data on their location and speed to surrounding vehicles and roadside infrastructure to curb crashes.

Toyota has deployed the technology in Japan to more than 100,000 vehicles since 2015.

Toyota Motor plans to start selling vehicles that can "talk" to each other in 2021 in a bid to make road travel safer, Bloomberg reports.

The US Transportation Department must decide whether to adopt a pending proposal that would require all future vehicles to have this advanced technology.

By announcing its plans, Toyota hopes the rest of the auto industry will follow suit and embrace the technology. The detail of the proposal insisted all vehicles "speak the same language through a standard technology".

FIS (NYSE:FIS) Shares Sold by Segall Bryant & Hamill LLC
The technology company reported $0.25 EPS for the quarter, missing the Thomson Reuters' consensus estimate of $0.26 by ($0.01). Finally, CIBC Asset Management Inc purchased a new position in shares of TiVo during the fourth quarter worth about $235,000.

Talking vehicles, which have been tested in pilot projects and by USA carmakers for more than a decade, use dedicated short-range communications to transmit data up to 300 meters, including location, direction and speed, to nearby vehicles.

DSRC will communicate using seven channels of the 5.9 GHz spectrum band that has been allocated for Intelligent Transportation Systems.

In 2017 General Motors Co began offering vehicle-to-vehicle technologies on its Cadillac CTS model, but it is now the only commercially available vehicle with the system.

Past year the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimated that the regulation could eventually cost between US$135 and US$300 per new vehicle, or up to US$5 billion annually. Importantly for consumers, because the technology does not require a cellular or data network, vehicles equipped with DSRC do not incur any cellular network carrier charges.

Looking ahead, communication-based technologies such as DSRC can help provide greater benefits to drivers as automakers increasingly equip vehicles with additional sensors, including radars and cameras.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) issued a preliminary rulemaking notice at the end of 2016, in the final months of the Obama Administration, that would mandate automakers install the equipment for V2V to work in new cars.
