In 2021, Hyundai cars will speak with road infrastructure

The automaker made a deal with an Israeli startup Autotalks, developing communications systems that transmit information about the location, speed and direction of the car. This is an important step towards creating autonomous robomobiles.

Hyundai announced the start of cooperation with the Israeli startup Autotalks, which is developing a device for connecting the car with road infrastructure and other vehicles. This technology, known as V2X (vehicle-to-everuthing), is considered an important step in the development of truly autonomous transport, New Atlas notes.

Autotalks devices, valued at $ 100 each, collect and transmit vehicle location, direction, and speed information up to 10 times per second.

If there is another car on the road equipped with a similar system, it will be able to respond to the risk of a collision or emergency braking. In addition, the technology will provide smoother traffic without traffic jams.

Of course, while V2X systems are installed on a small number of machines, and the corresponding road infrastructure is almost absent, the advantages of the technology will be relatively small. However, as it spreads, they will increase. However, it is likely that some drivers will not want to buy cars that will constantly monitor them.

In Hyundai cars, Autotalks V2X devices will appear as early as 2021.

Researchers from the United States found that traditional intersections are not suitable for robomobiles. The best way to optimize traffic is to let traffic lights pass columns of autonomous vehicles. According to calculations, this will increase the traffic capacity of intersections by 138%.
