Who are BL Claims Solicitors

We are rated as one of the top firms in the UK and believe in speaking to our clients in jargon-free language and ensuring you're speaking to a highly qualified lawyer right from the outset

Daimler are currently testing a communication system C2X as part of a new project consisting of 120 vehicles in which will be fitted with the C2X system and will take to the roads of  Germany to test the system which will continue until the end of the year. The communication system consisting of network connections which is being tested allows all of the drivers and C2X to share information with each other and communicate with the traffic infrastructure.

By being able to share information as to traffic conditions, hazards and accidents whilst on the road, vehicles will be able to travel more safely and more efficiently. For example, if one car is stuck in traffic or there is an accident ahead which is not obvious to the traffic behind, this information can communicated to the network connections to warn the traffic behind in good time so they can take evasive action to avoid the traffic jams or accident scenes.

The aim of the new field trial is to test the systems’ suitability for everyday use in real-life traffic conditions and the experiments are part of the research project  by Daimler who are also engaged in communications with research in California where the C2X systems is also being fitted to vehicles for testing which enables Daimler to test the technology internationally.

Any technology that helps to keep us safe on the roads must be a good thing.
