Selected cities in the US Smart City competition will get new technologies such as wireless communication for the transport sector.

NXP and partner Cohda Wireless will give the winning Smart City wireless communication modules that allow cars to securely exchange data like hazard warnings over more than a mile to prevent accidents and improve traffic flow.

Vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle to infrastructure communication could prevent up to 80% of crashes where alcohol is not a factor by alerting drivers to hazards like an icy bridge or speeding car.

“In the near term, it’s not about automated driving as much as it’s about assisted driving,” NXP Chief Executive Officer Rick Clemmer said.

The technology could be added to police, fire, or other municipal vehicles.
