Anti-crash Test

Car India - - BULLETIN -

Audi and Du­cati have con­ducted con­trolled col­li­sion avoid­ance tests us­ing two cars and a Du­cati Mul­tistrada mo­tor­cy­cle wherein all three were equipped with the col­li­sion avoid­ance sys­tem, al­low­ing them to com­mu­ni­cate with one an­other. Called Cel­lu­lar Ve­hi­cle-to-Ev­ery­thing (C-V2X), the tech uses 5G mo­bile band­width to cre­ate a traf­fic map of the area. It pro­vides in­for­ma­tion about other ve­hi­cles in the vicin­ity and helps with sit­u­a­tional aware­ness.

The first test was the In­ter­sec­tion Col­li­sion Warn­ing, wherein one ve­hi­cle pulls out from a junc­tion and avoids a col­li­sion with the mo­tor­cy­cle which may have had the right of way. An­other was the Across Traf­fic Turn Col­li­sion Risk Warn­ing, which warns when tak­ing a left turn, ideal for blind spots. The Ad­vanced Radar As­sis­tance Sys­tem mon­i­tors mul­ti­ple ve­hi­cles at the same time and can sense if an­other ve­hi­cle is slow­ing down and warns ac­cord­ingly. It could, in the fu­ture, even slow down the equipped ve­hi­cle or even bring it to a com­plete halt, if nec­es­sary.

In the fu­ture, ve­hi­cles will be able to com­mu­ni­cate with one an­other us­ing this sys­tem based on C-V2X tech­nol­ogy to avoid a col­li­sion in the first place. The sys­tem will also al­low ve­hi­cles to com­mu­ni­cate with and eas­ily iden­tify other road el­e­ments such as traf­fic lights and speed-limit signs.
