Η BMW ανακοίνωσε ότι αναπτύσσει και αυτή τεχνολογία που επιτρέπει στα αυτοκίνητα της να “μιλούν” μεταξύ τους. Η BMW ονόμασε την τεχνολογία “Car-2-X” και είναι μέρος της τεχνολογίας ConnectedDrive. Μέσω αισθητήρων το Car-2-X μπορεί να “δει” τον δρόμο και να ενημερώσει τόσο τον οδηγό όσο και τα διερχόμενα αυτοκίνητα. Το σύστημα λειτουργεί ασύρματα είτε μέσω δικτύων της κινητής τηλεφωνίας είτε μέσω WLAN έτσι ώστε να μεταφέρονται τα δεδομένα σε πραγματικό χρόνο.

Δες τα 14 video που ακολουθούν για να καταλάβεις το πως λειτουργεί το σύστημα, το οποίο θα τοποθετηθεί τόσο στα αυτοκίνητα της όσο και στις μοτοσυκλέτες της, ενώ περισσότερες λεπτομέρειες μπορείς να βρεις στο δελτίο τύπου που ακολουθεί.

When cars talk to each other.

The key to intelligent driving, which is synonymous with energy-efficient and safe driving, is forward thinking. To help drivers plan ahead, vehicles from the BMW Group are already fitted with a large number of sensors designed to improve safety, comfort and efficiency. Often, however, these sensors have only a limited predictive capability or “horizon”. “Car-to-x” communication extends this horizon significantly, and will in future allow drivers to “see” long distances ahead, into areas currently hidden from view, and even around not just one but many corners.

Car-to-x communication means electronic networking of vehicles and roadside infrastructure, with the aim of exchanging information directly both between road users and between road users and roadside infrastructure such as traffic lights. Car-to-x communication is a comprehensive communication network which any road user can take part in.

Car-to-x communication usually operates via WLAN or mobile phone connections. For standard automotive application, car-to-x communication at present uses high-speed WLAN networking based on the high-frequency WLAN IEEE802.11p/ G5A standard, which is designed to allow real-time communication. The protocol allows large numbers of participants to communicate simultaneously without interference. At the same time the performance of mobile phone networks is improving steadily, with an increase in bandwidth and a reduction in data lag – the so-called latency times. Therefore, this type of medium, too, is becoming increasingly important for car-to-car communication, for example as a complement to direct communication via WLAN.

Connectivity brings added value.

Integrated and connected vehicle functions are nothing new within the BMW Group. Connectivity for infotainment applications already made its debut in the 1990s with BMW ConnectedDrive. For some years, the focus of development work in the BMW Group has been shifting increasingly towards integrated and connected comfort and, in particular, safety functions. Here, car-to-x communication opens up completely new potential. In the event of a hazard, extensive connectivity between vehicles allows oncoming and following traffic to be given advance warning of potential dangers, and therefore to react appropriately and in good time. But warnings are only one possible use of this communication platform. Since infrastructure data, too – for example about traffic light phases – can be integrated into this communication system, information is available which allows drivers to easily adapt their driving style for even greater efficiency, thereby significantly reducing vehicle emissions. This technology therefore offers new solutions not only for proactive safety and accident prevention but also for intelligent energy management.

“The more information I have about the rest of my journey – for example, if I know in advance when traffic lights will change, or if I know that an accident has just happened further along the route – the more promptly I can react, which means I have less stress and can either avoid hazardous situations altogether or at least reduce the risk.” (Karl-Ernst Steinberg, Head of Information and Communication Technologies at BMW Group Research and Technology).

In combination with existing vehicle sensors, car-to-x communication provides a valuable starting point or enhancement for a wide range of BMW ConnectedDrive driver assistance and information systems of the future. These technologies, combined with the driver’s own input, create an extremely high-performance macrosystem capable of ensuring a safe and efficient journey from start to finish.

    mallon 8a kanei ntempouto sthn epomeni 7ara se 4-5 xronia apo twra, mazi me ta psifiaka organa pou vlepoume sto video.(stin epomeni S-Class ola einai psifiaka)

  • kai στο επομενο τρομοκρατικο χτυπημα οι χακερσ απλα  8α κανουν ενα μεγαλο τροχαιο!!!!!!!!!
    αμα δεν ξερεισ να οδηγασ..απλα παρε τα Μ.Μ.Μ !!!!!!

       Συμφωνω, το εχουν παρακανει με αυτη την τεχνολογια τους. Στο τελος τα αυτοκινητα δεν θα εχουν ουτε τιμονι αλλα θα σε πηγαινουν οπου θελεις αυτοματα.
      Πιστευω η δεκαετια του 2000 ηταν οι καλυτερη για τους λατρεις της οδηγησης

    Θέλουμε εμείς να οδηγούμε τα αμάξια μας και όχι αυτά εμάς…
    Προτείνω να κάνουμε ένα κίνημα κατά των (υπερβολικών) ηλεκρονικών βοηθημάτων οδήγησης…
