Ford Project: Interconnected Cars to Prevent Accident

The car manufacturer, Ford, has appeared in Düsseldorf (Germany) CoCarX with their research project (Co-operative Cars Extended), a smart car to car communication to optimize the management of traffic and reduce pollution, but above all, a revolutionary to improve road safety for drivers and risks and prevent accidents.

The project is funded by the German Ministry of Education and his collaborating companies like Ericsson, Vodafone, BMW and the German Federal Highway Administration.

The investigation began in 2009 with the aim of creating the necessary infrastructure for sending information between vehicles. Cars that are connected almost instantly reported on the status of the driving, road conditions, possible risks, delays, etc, all with a preventive purpose. They have used localized radio frequency and the latest and most advanced technology in mobile networks.

Ford has been a pioneer when it comes to making a show with this kind of communication over the mobile network LTE (Long Term Evolution), broadband and higher speed when transmitting over other conventional systems. The effectiveness was evident with both S-Max units tested: the message system sends an emergency that appears on the console of the second S-Max unit in just 100 milliseconds.

This innovative project will reduce accidents.
