Mercedes-Benz has announced a car-to-car communication technology called ‘The Car-to-X’. They will be the first to automobile manufacture to offer this type of technology. The “Car-to-X” will help drivers, as it is able to communicate with other automobiles, and traffic infrastructures. This will give drivers the ability to see potential hazards before they encounter it. Mercedes-Benz owners will have more time to react in traffic, illuminate blind spots, see around corners, and communicate in real-time with their automobile.

Mercedes-Benz hope to release the technology later this year as part of their “Drive Kit Plus” package that does require drivers to have a smartphone and a Digital DriveStyle application. There is no word on what specific models will feature the Car-to-X. You can read more information about this exciting technology from Mercedes-Benz.
