In cooperation with Here Technologies, Tom Tom, and the transport authorities in six European countries, Daimler, BMW, Ford, and Volvo are testing how information about acutely hazardous situations can be communicated using Car-to-X technology. The test phase is scheduled to last twelve months, starting in the Netherlands. The pilot project will be run under the umbrella of a public-private partnership called the European Data Task Force.
“The more vehicles we have sharing safety data in real time, the safer our roads become,” said Malin Ekholm, Head of the Volvo Cars Safety Centre. “That is why the European Data Task Force is such an important initiative. We hope to bring on board even more partners who share our commitment to safety.”
