Hyderabad: First-of-its-kind 5 prototype vehicles based on futuristic V2X communication technology were showcased at the IIT Hyderabad campus.

Suzuki Motor Corporation, Japan (SMCJ), Maruti Suzuki India Limited (MSIL), and IIT Hyderabad (IITH) have teamed up to research India-specific vehicle usage scenarios based on futuristic V2X (Vehicle-to-Everything) communication technology.

V2X communications technology, when used in conjunction with appropriate infrastructure, traffic rules, and driver education, can help reduce traffic incidents and road congestion

At the technology demonstration, Kazunobu Hori, Managing Officer, Suzuki Motor Corporation, Japan, and Senior Executive Director, Maruti Suzuki was joined by Tarun Aggarwal, Executive Director, Maruti Suzuki, and Rahul Bharti, Executive Director, Maruti Suzuki.


Some of the use case scenarios showcased were Ambulance Alerting System in which Car drivers are alerted about an approaching emergency vehicle and its path through V2X communication. It helps the driver to safely plan maneuvers and make way for an emergency vehicle. The alert system will also share minute details like the distance between the vehicles on a real-time basis.

Wrong-way Driver Alerting system where Car drivers get a pre-alert about the existence of a wrong way driver approaching using V2X communication. Pedestrian Alerting System which assists car drivers about a pedestrian nearby, using V2X communication, who could be coming in the way of the car. This will help the drivers to take precautionary measures to avoid a potential collision.

Motorcycle Alerting System where the car drivers learn through V2X communication about a fast-moving 2-wheeler approaching from a blind spot and likely to collide. Real-time information is shared with the driver about the distance and direction of the approach.

Road Condition Alerting System where the driver receives an alert of bad road conditions and cautions the driver to tread carefully ahead in the journey And Car as a computer which enables all interested car users to share the idle computing capacity of the microprocessor in the car when it is not being used for driving.
