19th ITS World Congress Vienna 2012
As of March 2012, we have been conducting public road tests to verify the benefits of a new innovative service that will provide support for safe and environmentally-friendly driving by utilizing the ability of radio waves to pass around sight obstructions such as buildings and large-size trucks.
Traffic conditions which cannot be detected by on-board sensors, e.g. due to poor visibility, are detected by sensors installed at the roadside, which pass the information on to the vehicle.
Vehicles exchange information on position and speed in order to detect the presence and behavior of surrounding vehicles.
