From streets to signs to traffic lights to other cars and even pedestrians, Delphi’s newest concept car to debut at CES is chatting up nearly everything in its path. That may change the face of communication, at least in automobiles.

 

Vehicle-to-Vehicle: Delphi’s car can see all the cars in the immediate vicinity and can detect when an adjacent car abruptly decides to get into the same lane as the Delphi car. In the real world, this would be a fender-bender or worse. Not with the Delphi car. It brakes safely every time. 

 
 

Vehicle-to-Traffic Light: Delphi’s car knows when every traffic light in Las Vegas will be green or red. Inside the car, there is a display counting down how many seconds until the light will change and whether the current speed of the car will make the light. Delphi’s car also anticipates yellow lights, so stopping for a light is gradual, not abrupt, making it safer for the cars traveling directly behind the Delphi automated car.

Vehicle-to-Pedestrian: Delphi’s autonomous car keeps an eye out for all pedestrians, even the absent-minded ones who step into the street without looking at traffic. Through a special chip in a smart phone, the Delphi engineer posing as the pedestrian gets an alert from the phone to look up and stop moving into traffic.
