Driverless and Talking Cars: New Technology Transforms the Way We Travel
Back in February, the U.S. Department of Transportation's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced its intent to enable vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication technology for light vehicles.
Not only does V2V technology have the potential to improve the safety of road travel, but it also has the potential to reduce environmental impacts and slash travel time.
To help provide us with some insight on this topic, we talked to several experts at IMS2014  involved with test and measurement, power solutions, research and development, IC components, and module solutions. The experts included:
- Matt Maxwell, Product Manager, Tektronix Spectrum Analyzers .
- Mehul Udani, General Manager responsible for connectivity solutions for Murata Americas .
- Edgardo Menendez, Field Applications Engineer at AVX Corporation .
- Eric Lind, National Sales Manager OEM at Varta Microbattery .
- Reginald Viray, Research Associate with the Connected & Advanced Vehicle Systems Group, Virginia Tech Transportation Institute .
The panelists answered questions on safety concerns, security issues, test and measurement, power, connectivity, standards and protocols, as well as retrofit solutions for current cars that don’t possess this type of technology.
