General Motors' (GM) upcoming Cadillac CTS is the only car firmly scheduled to launch in the U.S. with vehicle-to-vehicle communications, or V2V, but the industry has promised that V2V will revolutionize safety and Cisco (CSCO) joined automakers earlier this month to brief the FCC on plans to test airwave sharing soon, said The Wall Street Journal. However, cable and telecom companies are pressuring carmakers to give up a part of the airwaves marked for V2V to be available for broader use, the report added. Publicly traded automakers include Fiat Chrysler (FCAU), Ford (F), Honda (HMC), Toyota (TM) and Volkswagen (VLKAY), while cable and telecom companies include Verizon (VZ), AT&T (T), Sprint (S), T-Mobile (TMUS), Comcast (CMCSA), Time Warner Cable (TWC) and Charter (CHTR).
