Volkswagen and Siemens make crossroads safer

Sensors at traffic lights detect cyclists and warn the driver
  • From classic vehicle safety to cooperative road safety
  • Thanks to WLANp, Car2X vehicles will be able to communicate with traffic lights in future
  • Precise environmental information at crossroads improves safety for all road users

Volkswagen and Siemens want to further improve road safety especially at crossroads. . To achieve this, new functionalities have been developed for the local exchange of information between vehicles and digital transport infrastructure. The overall system uses the Car2X technology WLANp (ITS-G5) and is currently undergoing tests on Wolfsburg roads.
