As part of its ‘Over the horizon’ research, Jaguar Land Rover is developing a vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) system that will enable vehicles to communicate with each other using wireless technology. Benefits and features of the system include: warning drivers of upcoming hazards that may not be visible – for example, around a bend in the road; enabling emergency vehicles to communicate with with regular vehicles to prevent delays; and overall increased road safety. The system is currently being demonstrated at Jaguar Land Rover’s testing facility in Warwickshire, UK.
