Issues in Action

-A A +A

Innovations in automotive technology are focusing on connections; both to other cars and the outside world. Connected cars could bring safety benefits, including lane departure warnings, adaptive cruise control, blind spot warnings, and automatic braking. Connected cars can also enhance the driver experience with improved navigation systems and cars that can park -­ and eventually drive - themselves.

Global Automakers' members are committed to exploring ways to improve safety on our highways and believes connected cars have the potential to save thousands of lives each year.
