Professor Larry Head and his team were on KGUN 9 discussing their connect vehicle technology.
"With Cadillac expected to debut their first 'connected car' in the next few years, the future of driving is here. And, like anything tech-related, work is already underway to take that technology to the next level. This time, that work is happening in Tucson.
"University of Arizona researchers are currently testing connected vehicle technology with surrounding infrastructure. Connected vehicle technology enables cars to send out super fast location information -- approximately 10 times a second -- to other equipped cars. Their research and real world application links the new technology to traffic lights, transit systems, emergency vehicles -- even pedestrians."
