V2X communication enhances a sense of connectedness in modern vehicles, and it will play an even more significant role in the autonomous car era. V2X is short for vehicle-to-everything, a system that enables cars to communicate with compatible networks and devices - including other vehicles and pedestrians - as well as road systems, traffic controls and other infrastructure. As the car’s communication system, it runs everything from operating systems to sensors, ADAS, contributing to safer driving, lower emissions and more efficient travel. V2X communication is the technology that can create the necessary connectivity for autonomous vehicles to operate safely, efficiently and reliably.
What are V2X standards?There are two main competing standards in V2X:
- IEEE 802.11dp, and
