New Vehicle Communications Tech for Toyota Cars

At Keyes Toyota, we know that many drivers want cars that offer the latest technology. The Toyota brand is always innovating and bringing new tech to its vehicles, so it's no surprise that it has advanced communications features in the works. If you've ever wondered what it would be like if cars could talk to each other, Toyota cars will soon let you find out.

By 2021, select Toyota models will come equipped with vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communications technology. This is a short-range communications system that could help improve traffic flow and even potentially save lives. Future versions of models like the 2018 Toyota Camry or the 2018 Toyota Sienna would actually be able to “talk” to eachother and let other vehicles know what lies ahead on the road.

This tech actually has a surprisingly long history. Automakers were given a spectrum that could be used for V2V and V2I communications all the way back in 1999. That means this feature wouldn't rely on cellular signals. Now we can finally get a chance to see what the Toyota brand can do with this technology.

Vehicle-to-vehicle communications tech could be used in a variety of situations that drivers encounter on the road every day. The car in front of you could let your vehicle know about hazardous conditions, like icy or flooded roads. Vehicles could also relay information about accidents or traffic jams. You might be able to take a different route instead of getting stuck in traffic. The Toyota brand expects this technology to save lives and make driving more convenient. Expect to see this feature in most of the Toyota lineup by the mid-2020s.

So when you're looking for reliable vehicles that offer cutting-edge tech, visit our Los Angeles Toyota dealership. We're ready to help you find a car that offers the features you need. We hope to see you soon!
