"Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) and Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) technologies will allow cars to communicate with each other and with the surrounding infrastructure ? leading to fewer crashes, less traffic congestion and greater fuel savings for consumers. 

"I commend the House Subcommittee on Commerce, Manufacturing and Trade for acknowledging the enormous potential these connected car technologies have to improve highway safety, enhance mobility, and benefit the environment. As the pace of innovation in the transportation sector accelerates, automakers are moving ahead of regulation. It's important for us to harness the power of this potentially life-saving technology and use our knowledge to support policymakers working to develop the rules of the road for emerging technologies like V2V communications.

"Our members are committed to exploring ways to further improve safety on our highways, and are working diligently with the Department of Transportation, automotive suppliers and other stakeholders to develop and field test thousands of vehicles with V2V communications capabilities."

Visit Global Automakers' website to learn more about emerging V2V and V2I technologies.
