An engineer with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said advances in vehicle-to-vehicle communications continue to accelerate and that new studies are under way to address several critical and complex issues. Alrik Svenson, a research engineer with NHTSA’s Office of Vehicle Crash Avoidance and Electronic Controls, said the latest project that just started is designed to develop methods for enabling the tractor to automatically obtain required trailer specification information. The Department of Transportation has launched a two-year project with the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute.
