What will actually make this all happen? And how reliable is the technology? Vehicle to vehicle (V2V) and vehicle to infrastructure (V2I) wireless technology, collectively known as V2X, improves road safety, reduces traffic congestion and enhances the overall passenger experience.

V2X Improvement #1: Blind Spot Warning (BSW) When traveling on a multilane road, the BSW application provides a notification to the driver of the host vehicle when a remote car is positioned in its blind spot.

V2X Improvement #2: Emergency Electronic Brake Light (EEBL)

The application will help the driver of a following vehicle by sending warning to surrounding vehicle via V2V if any of the identified vehicles is either hard breaking or performing hard deceleration.
