Nevada CAM and Nexar – a technology company providing the world’s first vehicle-to-vehicle network for preventing road collisions and enabling autonomous mobility – are collaborating create the first statewide vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) network in the country. This unprecedented collaboration is designed to enhance safety on Nevada’s roads and highways, spur economic development and job creation in the state, and introduce a series of innovative smart transportation systems that will optimize infrastructure management, regional planning and inform policy throughout Nevada.
Building on a statewide pedestrian safety campaign, the Nevada Center for Advanced Mobility (NCAM) teamed up with the GENIVI Alliance, an industry alliance focused on open in-vehicle infotainment software for the connected car, on a vehicle-to-city communication pilot project aimed at addressing the city’s top priorities to improve pedestrian safety and traffic flow in Las Vegas.
The pilot demonstrates how vehicle communications technology and vehicle data can integrate with the existing transportation infrastructure and will deliver information to drivers regarding road conditions and other road users including pedestrians.
The key technology partner is the GENIVI Alliance, who will deploy its open Remote Vehicle Interaction (RVI) technology to capture information from equipped vehicles and manage vehicle-to-server, round-trip communication of the data and actionable messaging.
Waycare’s predictive analytics platform optimizes city traffic management and is empowering the future of city mobility by combining city data along with real-time in-vehicle information, and deep learning technologies, allowing cities to know their roads like never before. Its recently launched pilot program, in partnership with the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC), aims to help prevent traffic crashes and congestion on roads in Southern Nevada.
