The author describes about future vehicles with smart IT technologies within 5years.
The main is about future vehicles which come with Wi-Fi technology necessary for cars to communicate with one another to prevent accidents, including more functions. In particular, the technology is called vehicle-to-vehicle communication (V2V) and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is billing it as a safety technology similar to seat belts and airbags. Moreover, when they combine with autonomous driving technologies, cars could then coordinate driving in configurations that let the most people get to their destination in the fastest way. Finally, NHTSA and the Department of Transportation will propose regulations that would require V2V communications in all new U.S in 2017.
The author provides a basic theoretical V2V technology with pictures and examples which are based on current V2V test by U.S Governments.
Therefore, while the article is useful for understanding of V2V technology, the limitation of the article will require more details of V2V technologies and how it will communicate with current vehicles.
