Cadillac doesn’t just reign superior when it comes to style. Safety matters, too! That’s why V2V safety technology is now standard on all Cadillac CTS sedans.
What does V2V stand for? It means “Vehicle-to-Vehicle” communications, and the addition of V2V to CTS sedans creates a communication network between vehicles. This new safety feature makes it easier to avoid accidents or traffic jams.
A Dedicated Short-Range Communications system and GPS work together to deliver messages between models. V2V alerts drivers of hazardous situations like slippery conditions, hard braking, and disabled vehicles.
But you, as the driver, don’t have to do anything. When a car approaches an intersection, V2V technology will scan for other vehicles, taking in information about their positions, speeds, and directions. With this information, the system suggests what issues there might be ahead of drivers.
“V2V essentially enables the car to sense around corners. Connecting vehicles through V2V holds tremendous potential, as this technology enables the car to acquire and analyze information outside the bounds of the driver’s field of vision,” said Richard Brekus, Cadillac global director of Product Strategy.
With V2V, every commute will be that much easier. If you’re curious about how it works, come down to Richard Karr Motors and check out the 2017 Cadillac CTS.
