Sue Bai, chief engineer at the Honda Research Institute and project lead for the 33 Smart Mobility Corridor, along Ohio's U.S. Route 33, described Honda's work on vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) connectivity to correspondent Jim Henry. Here are edited excerpts.
Q: There are advanced driver-assistance system features where the vehicle takes an action if the driver doesn't intervene in a timely manner, such as automatic emergency braking, as opposed to just issuing a warning. Which description applies to new features Honda is testing?
A: Honda production driver-assistance systems have control intervention such as applying brakes in AEB. For the V2X (vehicle-to-everything) system in Honda fleet vehicles on U.S. 33, it is warning only, without any control intervention.
