NHSTA to Deploy Fleet of 2800 V2V-Ready Vehicles This Summer.
Most new vehicle technologies, including even safety features, are introduced as premium options on luxury vehicles. In the case of safety features these gradually become available to lower priced vehicle segments as it becomes more mainstream. However, the exception to this rule happens when regulations are put in place that require new technology be installed on new vehicles from a certain date forward. Based on the NHTSA’s interest in Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) technology and possible safety benefits it may become one of those exceptions before too long.
