Volkswagen Group assumes pioneering role in rapid road safety improvement

  • Group-wide roll-out of WLANp standard in volume models from 2019 will soon create a broad-based network of information on local traffic risks
  • Active and cooperative safety systems will significantly enhance road safety and improve traffic flow
  • Standard equipment on new models without additional cost will lead to the fast and efficient distribution of this technology that can be used jointly

From 2019 onwards, the brands of the Volkswagen Group are to use the WLANp standard, which has already been comprehensively tested, for communications among vehicles and between vehicles and their environment. The introduction of this technology as standard equipment on volume models ranging from compact cars to commercial vehicles will significantly improve safety on the roads of Europe.
