Local hazard warnings via Car2X. Thanks to the use of smart software and electronics, Volkswagen is also raising the safety of its models to a new level. An example for this is the standard Car2X communication launched with the latest Golf. This new system is also on board in the new ID. models. Car2X communication uses the information provided by other vehicles (with the Car2X function) within a radius of up to 800 metres in addition to signals from the traffic infrastructure to warn drivers about hazards much earlier than was previously possible, and to forward these warnings to other correspondingly equipped models. Volkswagen is acting as a pioneer here – with a technology that uses the swarm intelligence principle. In other words, the more participants there are, the better it becomes. The vision of an accident-free future therefore comes an important step closer.
