Audi Works to Make Roads Safer for School Buses, Emergency Vehicles

The U.S. arm of the German automaker has confirmed an expanded partnership with commercial vehicle manufacturer Navistar that will demonstrate how cellular vehicle-to-everything technology can play a part in cutting the number of road accidents and fatalities.

Describing C-V2X as a “major step toward safer mobility for drivers, students, paramedics, patients and more,” Audi has explained how it will be used to improve driver information in school zones, at school bus stops and in emergency vehicle situations, with first deployments in summer. Infrastructure expert Applied Information and the Traffic Control Corporation are also involved in the project.
