resistance for the following trucks, offering them
improved efficiency.
"The typical example right now is the pilots we
do with platooning," Bendix's Molin says. "At that
point, you need direct V2V [communication] and
to be able to send it out to those two vehicles in
what's currently an unsafe space because they're
too close to each other. You need to have a solid,
solid V2V connection so that as soon as that first
truck brakes ... that second
truck needs to know the same
millisecond to brake at the
same time. We can't wait for
the relative distance between
the two vehicles to start to
decrease before the second
vehicle understands that braking is happening."
While V2V communication
may be useful for operations
such as platooning, it could
also help with autonomous
driving. If vehicles are able to
communicate, and therefore
know instantaneously what
the vehicles around them are
doing, it will allow them to
react in that instant, preventing potential mishaps.
V2I communication could
also be helpful when it comes
to autonomous vehicles. If an
autonomous vehicle knows
a traffic light is ahead, for
example, it can prepare to
stop depending on what
the light is communicating
- whether it will be red or
green by the time the vehicle
reaches it.
Molin notes that V2I
communication may end
up looking more like V2X.
However, instead of the traffic light sending a dedicated
message to each individual
vehicle, that information can
go from the traffic light to the
cloud to be used by all vehicles
in the area.
Vehicle automation will
make communication even
more vital for vehicle maintenance. Molin explains that
today, the driver monitors
vehicle systems and can feel
what the vehicle is doing.
However, as technology gets
closer to fully autonomous
vehicles by augmenting the
driver more and more, fleets
will need to know vehicle
conditions remotely.
This means that vehicle
system sensors will need to
become even more robust,
detecting every system to
ensure it is operating properly since the driver will not

be there to monitor them. Then, that information
needs to be communicated back to the fleet.

Conclusion

From humble beginnings, vehicle data connections have come a long way and made vehicle
maintenance more streamlined and efficient.
Remotely connected vehicles are no longer a thing

of the future; they are a present-day reality.
As connected vehicles launch the transportation industries into the future, it will include
greater maintenance efficiency and, therefore,
increased uptime.
With great power, however, comes great responsibility, and keeping vehicle connections secure
needs to be priority number one for OEMs, telematics service providers, fleets, and owners alike.
