The new safety technology is based on cloud-stored communication between all connected cars – regardless of car brand – and thus constitutes an important step in increasing traffic safety. Ford is participating in a new collaboration on data sharing between online-connected cars across car brands to increase road safety. The European Commission is behind the project. A car connected online can alert the driver to a possible hazard waiting just around the next turn. This kind of safety technology can become a whole ecosystem of data sharing that increases road safety for all drivers.
