Car makers today are looking for better technologies that can allow drivers to have better driving experience. General Motors researchers have now announced that they are working on new wireless pedestrian detection technology that can help drivers to be careful when they are driving their vehicles. The new technology allows drivers to detect pedestrians and bicyclists on the road even in poor visibility conditions and allow them to handle the car in the right way before it is too late. The feature relies on Wi-Fi Direct and peer to peer wireless standard that will make things simpler.
Nady Boules, GM Global R&D Director said that General Motors have always come up with innovative technology that can help the consumers to have better driving experience. This new wireless detection technology can warn drivers about pedestrians who might be stepping in front of the vehicle accidentally. It can also save many lives in the future and bring down the number of accidental deaths across the world. He said that Wi-Fi Direct has the potential to become one of the best technologies in the future and this technology will be available in various models of Chevrolet, Cadillac, and Buick and GMC vehicles in the near future once they have finalized the technology.
