A demonstration of how connected car technology can be used across all different kind of vehicles was highlighted by Cisco, according to CBS Insights.
Cisco launched a connected roadway architecture to help tackle the infrastructure side. The infrastructure is been already used by Austria, Japan, Singapore and the USA. The car will have a Cisco router capable of driving vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2X) communications.
The router can link with traffic lights, favoring emergency vehicles racing to an accident. Vehicles can communicate with the infrastructure to know which roads have less traffic or other kinds of obstructions.
Similar technology can be used in mass transportation vehicles, people counters, passenger Wi-Fi and so on.
For now Carandus.com allows drivers to send each other messages simply by the registration and it is free of use.
