For drivers, overtaking a truck is always a risk. Now, the latest craze of the auto technology arena, vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication systems – or, cars that can “talk” to one another in real time – is promising to lessen that risk and heighten road safety.

Autotalks, founded and headquartered in Israel, has become a world leader in V2V as well as vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) technology, which enables, for example, traffic lights and other infrastructure to respond to an emergency vehicle’s needs.

In 2008, Israeli entrepreneurs Nir Sasson and Onn Haran founded Autotalks to fill a need in the automotive industry. They implemented a sophisticated wireless technology in a smart chipset that allows cars to exchange data.

In October, Autotalks will present its latest offering — the world’s first automotive-grade chipset ready for series-production for connected car models — at the auto industry’s big event, the ITS World Congress in Tokyo.

The technology analyzes data transmitted by the on-board processing units of nearby vehicles in order to warn drivers of any imminent danger and communicate with transportation infrastructure.

“This chipset is ready to be deployed in vehicles,” Autotalks director of marketing Daniel Campbell tells ISRAEL21c, explaining that car-to-car chipsets will be installed in certain high-end models by 2015.
