Lexus to Launch Vehicle-to-Vehicle Communications in 2021

Lexus Vehicle-to-Vehicle

Starting in 2021, Toyota and Lexus vehicles in the USA will be able to communicate with each other using short-range wireless technology and potentially avoid accidents as a result.

Dedicated Short-Range Communications (DSRC) systems are able to broadcast data up to 300 meters, sharing its location, direction and speed, with nearby vehicles. Other DSRC-enabled vehicles will be able to use this information to avoid collisions, identify potential hazards, and map traffic patterns.

DSRC communicates using the 5.9 GHz wireless spectrum band dedicated to vehicle-to-vehicle data sharing, and does not require a cellular or data network. It is also based on industry standards, so any vehicle with DSRC will be able to communicate with each other regardless of manufacturer.

(Toyota and Lexus became the world’s first automaker to sell and commercialize vehicles equipped with DSRC when the technology launched in Japan in 2015. As of March 2018, more than 100,000 DSRC-equipped Toyota and Lexus vehicles were on the road in Japan. )

Nice Krew! This system will help with traffic jams for Lexus’s and Toyota’s in city areas , so I think others would be able to avoid problem area before listening to 1010 wins . Also this will be used by the police to track a vehicle across states for any reason legally. Nice !!!

actually this system can not track you, thats the point it, otherwise who would use it? It is used for vehicle-to-vehicle communications, directly between vehicles, it is not online, it does not upload data anywhere.

It is also used by VW and i think BMW too.

Yeah ,I was just checking into that and it can because the system works with gps and connections between signals relays, data to connect and correspond . I was only saying if they need to fine someone and they have the make and model of the car . We also have phones , once you have one your on the grid , even turn of your location doesn’t help because once you make or receive a call , you location would be around a phone tower . This system is a right step for Lexus .

no, there is no relay in V2V system that Toyota uses. It is direct Vehicle to Vehicle data.

V2X that GM is using indeed does use cellular signal to upload its data, I think that is very problematic from privacy use, it is really just a law away from making that data accessible to the cops and then your every speeding incident becoming a ticket.
