Obama supports the advancement of the car-to-car communication era

US President Barack Obama attended yesterday an event that sought to showcase its administrations’ efforts to support the automotive private sector, especially the enterprises that seek to develop wireless communication between vehicles.

The president was on location to tour a highway research center in McClean, Virginia, near Washington and he even embarked on a wild ride in a car simulator. During his visit he touted the necessity of the introduction of the so-called vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communication technology. According to experts, it should improve navigation, by exchanging real-time information wirelessly between cars and other vehicles, while also hopefully reducing the accident rates and improving fuel efficiency.

“As the father of a daughter who just turned 16, any new technology that makes driving safer is important to me,” Obama said, talking about his oldest daughter, Malia.

The US regulators and the federal safety agency, the NHTSA, are already mulling the introduction of rules that would make the advancements possible – after which the technology should become compulsory on all new vehicles, starting as early as 2017. The event was used to showcase the advancements made through a joint effort by the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute and leading carmakers – Ford, GM, Hyundai, Mercedes-Benz, Nissan, Toyota and Volkswagen.
