Vehicle Cloud Vehicle Communication

Vehicle to Vehicle communication will be one of the next big revolutions of vehicle saftey. Volvo have already stated by 2020 there will be no fatalites in their vehicles.

However, as all vehicle manufactures implement this technology, without an open standard, there will be a format war.

This project, aims to put that standard in the public domain, with the intent of being the defacto standard for vehicle to vehicle communication. A very ambitious project.

By using 3/4g communication and the power and GPS of todays smart phones.

  • Servers will all use REST.
  • Vehicles will always send data annoymously.  Data over 5mins will be purged.  Historical data has no purpose for detection.
