Ford Studies Russian Space Robots to Make Your Car Safer

BRIGHTON, Mich. - Within the next few years, it is very likely that vehicle-to-vehicle communication will be common in Ford vehicles. This technology would be used for safety reasons, allowing vehicles to exchange anonymous data if they are nearby. This data would include things such as speed, position, etc. However, this technology is still in the beginning stages, with the kinks still being worked out. That's why Ford will now study Russian Space Robots to make your car safer - sound confusing? Let us explain.

This communication model will be analyzed by Ford to see how communication is sent to space, even when the system experiences an outage. Specifically, how the robots in space communicate with the robot caretakers at the St. Petersburg Polytechnic University in Russia.

By studying how communication works between earth and the Russian space robots, Ford will be able to improve its vehicle-to-vehicle communication system drastically. With the information collected, Ford will know how to create a communication network that will continue to function even if a car's data connection is damaged in a crash or the system fails. To put it simply, Ford is trying to create a way for vehicles to communicate with each other even if one vehicle's system goes offline. That means that if an accident occurs, drivers and their cars would receive an emergency message informing them about the damaged vehicle.
