Researchers Develop Communication System Between Vehicles to Reduce Accidents

Researchers at the Institute of Telecommunications and at the Universidade do Porto carried out a research project that determines how the digital wireless communications between vehicles can improve driving safetyand efficiency in traffic. The See-Through System(STS) was explained to Lusa using the analogy of a mirror to aid the driver. "We want to design something like a mirror, but that allows us to seethe road in the front of a truck or bus that follows ahead," said the principal investigator of the project.
