2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class to Feature Car-to-X-Communication
When the 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class makes its debut, the team at RBM of Alpharetta expects it’ll earn the distinction of being the most autonomous vehicle in our new vehicle inventory, thanks to its Car-to-X-Communication. Car-to-X-Communication will feature a variety of intelligent information systems and accident-prevention systems, bringing drivers even closer to a fully autonomous driving experience. Read on to learn more about what this unique piece of safety technology can do!
What to Expect from Car-to-X-Communication
Simply put, Car-to-X-Communication is the radio-based exchange of information between vehicles and traffic infrastructure. This type of technology is capable of obtaining information from points far outside of your field of vision in order to alert you of potentially dangerous situations as early as possible.
Every vehicle equipped with Car-to-X-Communication will be able to autonomously send and receive warnings. In the event that a vehicle receives a warning, Car-to-X-Communication will compare the location of the dangerous area with the position of the vehicle. The moment the you approach the hazard, you’ll receive both an audible and visual warning, helping you alter your driving behavior accordingly to avoid a potential collision. Additional safety features, such as Evasive Steering Assist, Active Lane Keeping Assist, and Active Brake Assist with cross-traffic function, will also help drivers reduce their risk of accidents.
Mercedes-Benz is focused on encouraging other auto manufacturers to pursue this type of technology. The more automakers that implement Car-to-X-Communication, the more effective it will be. Engineers are starting to develop Car-to-X-Communication with Drive Kit Plus technology, which will integrate the iPhone into the vehicle’s software, making Car-to-X-Communication possible in every model.
Fortunately for SUV fans, Car-to-X-Communication will be available on the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC when it enters the market in November. The technology will run in the vehicle’s background software, so that it doesn’t need to be activated to receive warnings. As a result, reaction time and distractions will be significantly reduced.
