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).

16:18 EDTTMJapanese carmakers delay Takata restructuring until post-recall, Reuters says
Japanese automakers including Honda (HMC), Nissan (NSANY), and Toyota (TM) are delaying pressure for a restructuring at Takata (TKTDY) until the company ships out a healthy supply of replacement parts, reports Reuters, citing Masaki Higurashi, deputy director of the Japanese trade ministry's auto division. "After all the replacement parts are supplied, the automakers have to decide whether to let Takata stay on as it is... I think the automakers are starting to think about that," added Higurashi. Reuters notes that Takata and the carmakers disagree on whether the most recent round of airbag recalls are necessary, and as a result have not reached an agreement on costs. Reference Link
