Review of current V2X technology and how they connect, as well as explaining future applications of the technology.

Key Claims:

  • V2X refers to a vehicle communicating with something. This could be Vehicle to Vehicle (V2V), or Vehicle to Infrastructure (V2I), or Vehicle to VRU etc. It is an intelligent transport system where all vehicles and infrastructure systems are interconnected with each other. It will help to:

    • Optimise traffic flow

    • Reduce congestions

    • Reduce accident numbers

    • Minimise emissions

  • It allows vehicles to automatically pass on information about things such as road conditions, traffic flow, and obstacles before they appear in the driver’s visual range. Vehicles will also be able to receive signals from intelligent road signs.

  • It will allow a clear path for emergency vehicles before the emergency vehicle is caught in traffic

  • V2X can be extended to Airplane2X, Rail2X, Ship2X etc.

  • Since intelligent traffic information on German A9 highway, there have been 35% fewer accidents, and 31% fewer people injured on the roads.
