V2X stands for Vehicle to Everything. But what is everything ?
In this multifaced ecosystem, cars talk to other cars, to infrastructure such as traffic lights or parking spaces, to smartphone-toting pedestrians, and to datacenters via cellular networks.
The game-changing technology uses a short-range wireless signal to communicate with compatible systems, and this signal is resistant to interference and inclement weather.
Many car brands and models use some already a form of V2X technology, on expensive to lower-priced vehicles, such as : BMW, PSA, Ford, Renault, Audi, Cadillac, Volkswagen, Toyota, Lexus, and many more …
V2X technology is particularly prominent in autonomous vehicles, which scans the immediate environment for risks and act upon their data. It gives a broader reach and more information to allow them to make the most informed decisions. V2X systems also transcend harsh weather conditions that often affect these vehicles, offering an added benefit.
|Enhance road safety
Road Side Equipment sends danger alerts to the vehicle in less than a second (eg. traffic jams, accidents, misinterpretation). Vehicles communicate directly with each other and help to anticipate collisions.
|Contribute to an easiest and fastest deployment of autonomous vehicle
The autonomous vehicle is nearsighted beyond 330ft and can not interpret dynamic signaling.
|Reduce traffic and pollution
Thanks to this connectivity technology, vehicles interacting with road infrastructure make it possible to automatically regulate speed on the roads.
Reducing speed, leads to a better circulation and a decrease of pollution.
