Reports say that Delhi is mulling to enhance its self-driving technology by integrating vehicle-to-everything (V2E) capabilities into its Audi SQ5 self-driving car. The company rolled out the car at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES), and it is looking to launch the active safety and automated driving technologies at next year’s CES.
The Audi SQ5 is equipped with Delphis’ advanced software and hardware, enabling the car to communicate with streets, traffic lights, signs, other cars and even pedestrians.
Included in the V2E is vehicle-to-vehicle technology (V2V), which will enable the Delphi car to spot when an adjacent car suddenly gets into the same lane as the autonomous car. Meanwhile, the vehicle to pedestrian (V2P) technology will utilize a special chip in a smartphone that will warn the vehicle about the pedestrians who do not pay attention to traffic as they use their phone.
Moreover, the Audi SQ5 self-driving car will be able to anticipate the signals, and will warn drivers about managing the situation in the event it gets caught in strange angles that inhibit the driver from seeing opposing traffic. It also boasts car sharing capabilities that will inform the driver’s family and friends of his location.
Jeff Owens, Delphi chief technology officer, said in a statement that they imagine a world with zero traffic accidents, and to make that possible, they would need a convergence of active safety, sensor fusion, connectivity platforms and advanced software. He claimed that Delphi has proven they are the sole company that has the right blend of all of those.
