USDOT: Connected vehicles promise safer, more responsive travel

This winter, USDOT wrapped up the largest V2V pilot program ever, with 3,000 cars on the road. Some were tested on the streets of Ann Arbor over the past two years. This effort brought together major automakers, technology companies, and leading academic research programs.

This pilot program provided us with such valuable data that we then took a key step forward in implementing V2V; in February of this year, we announced that DOT will begin work on a rule that will require V2V technology in all new vehicles.
