V2V technology hits the racetrack to keep drivers safe

On Tuesday, Autotalks and Israeli startup Griiip revealed research into how Vehicle to Everything (V2X) and Vehicle to Vehicle (V2V) communication chipsets are making inroads in motorsports.

The companies have developed a single seater racing car with Autotalks CRATON2 chipsets, designed to “eliminate a significant number of race car accidents and casualties in professional and amateur racing.”

Speaking to ZDNet, Yaniv Sulkes, VP of Marketing and Business Development at Autotalks said the chipset-enabled cars communicate via the Dedicated Short Range Communication (DSRC) protocol.
