Cadillac successfully demonstrates V2I capability with new CTS

0

Cadillac’s CTS sedan – one of the first production vehicles in the world to contain V2V communication – has now successfully demonstrated V2I capability in Michigan, USA. Development vehicles received real-time data from traffic controllers on signal phasing and timing during successful demonstrations recently conducted in collaboration with Michigan road agencies.

The traffic signals, located adjacent to the GM Warren Technical Center campus at the intersections of 12 Mile and 13 Mile roads, were able to send real-time data using dedicated short-range communications protocol to the development vehicles, which alerted the drivers of a potential red light violation at current speed. This alert helps avoid the dangerous decision to either brake abruptly or accelerate through a busy intersection.
