PERVASIVE computing 55 ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ AN INTERVIEW WITH DAIMLERCHRYSLER'S WIELAND HOLFELDER Vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communication seems to be an up-and-coming topic. What is this technology's potential? Dedicated Short Range Communication, or DSRC, has the potential to significantly reduce accidents and improve traffic flow. So far, vehicles have been able to "feel" or "see" the environment through autonomous vehicle sensors such as wheel-speed sensors or radar

It gives the vehicle systems and therefore the drivers a much better awareness of their surroundings so they can avoid dangerous situations altogether. We call this the "extended information horizon," which lets a driver "see" over hills and around curves.
