Cadillac revealed its 2017 CTS sedan will be the first car in the U.S. to include vehicle-to-vehicle communications as a standard feature, Mashable reports. The V2V system helps cars share information about road conditions and troublesome areas with other connected automobiles. Cadillac Engineering Group Manager Matt Kirsch said the system was created with privacy and cybersecurity considerations, including having a firewall in place and ensuring user data is never stored on the vehicle. The new Cadillac will only be able to communicate with other CTS models for now, but could expand with the U.S. Department of Transportation pushing to mandate V2V systems in future cars.
