Toyota And Lexus Bringing V2V and V2I Communications Tech To America In 2021

Vehicle-to-Vehicle and Vehicle-to-Infrastructure communications technology has the potential to save a significant number of lives but the roll out of the technology has been relatively slow.

If all automakers equip models with V2V, it "will not only help drivers get to their destinations more safely and efficiently, but also help lay the foundation for future connected and automated driving systems", said Jim Lentz, CEO of Toyota North America.

The Japanese automaker reports in a Monday, April 16 news release that Toyota and its Lexus brand will start working on developing what it is calling the Dedicated Short-Range Communications system.

Dedicated short-range communications (DSRC) systems are one tool in automakers' bag of tricks to reduce accidents, improve traffic and eventually usher in autonomy.

But the push for a vehicle-to-vehicle, or V2V, communications rule has stalled amid President Donald Trump's drive to deregulate, according to Bloomberg. However, Toyota has now deployed its own technology in more than 100,000 vehicles in its native Japan since 2015.

In 2017, Jing discovered that a woman of the same name had been working with the education bureau in her hometown, Sanyuan. When other patrons and one the victims began filming her racist rant, Tucker appeared to have completely lost her cool.

The technology does not require a cellular or data network and vehicles equipped with DSRC, therefore, won't incur any cellular network carrier charges.

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

The Obama administration proposed giving automakers at least four years to comply. The detail of the proposal insisted all vehicles "speak the same language through a standard technology".

The US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) said previous year the regulation could eventually cost between $135 and $300 per new vehicle, or up to $5 billion annually but could prevent up to 600,000 crashes and reduce costs by $71 billion annually when fully deployed.

Previous 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.

Over the past 13 years, Toyota has collaborated with other automakers, infrastructure organizations and the U.S. Department of Transportation to develop DSRC V2X communication technologies.

While it has 2021 in its crosshairs for some of its models, Toyota believes most of its vehicles stateside will have the new technology by the mid-2020s.

"We need to make a technology choice when there's no regulatory requirement in place", said John Kenney, director of networking research at the Toyota InfoTechnology Center in California.
