Savari is able to tie any kind of smartphone into the V2X ecosystem. Our R&D team is developing and deploying innovative solutions in three ways:
1. Conducting tests in collaboration with chipset vendors and smartphone manufacturers on DSRC-equipped smartphones. The next generation of smartphones can transform any non-smart car into a connected car with the same capabilities as new model cars.
2. Beta testing the SmartCross application developed in collaboration with the USDOT, helping pedestrians (visually and mobility impaired) and bicyclists safely get preference on an intersection through their smartphone.
3. Testing existing safety applications, such as forward collision warning, intersection movement assist and blind spot warning on cellular-only connections. Although functionality, accuracy and timeliness would be compromised marginally, the applications would tie every non-smart car into the V2X ecosystem, as well as represent an increase to current safety applications.
