Connected Vehicles

Connected vehicles in an intersectionConnected vehicles send and receive messages to other vehicles, wireless devices and infrastructure such as traffic signals and roadside units. They could make Oregon roads much safer by providing information such as warning messages to prevent collisions.
Human error is a critical factor in most crashes. The majority of crashes are caused by recognition errors where drivers are not paying attention to the road or cars around them, or decision errors such as speeding, following too close or other unsafe maneuvers. Connected vehicles could help warn drivers about objects and vehicles they cannot see, adverse road or weather conditions, slowing traffic, work zones or other information that could help them recognize and respond to hazards.
