As its name implies, vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communications and its solutions enable the exchange of information between vehicles and between vehicle network infrastructure.
The goal of V2X is to improve road safety, increase the efficient flow of traffic, reduce environmental impacts and provide additional traveler information services.
V2X communications consists of four types of communications: vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V), vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I), vehicle-to-network, (V2N) and vehicle-to-pedestrian (V2P).
This white paper describes the role and benefits that cellular V2X can provide to support the USDOT objectives of improving safety and reducing vehicular crashes.
Cellular V2X can also be instrumental in transforming the transportation experience by enhancing traveler and traffic information for societal goals such as increased mobility and reduced pollution. Moreover, Cellular V2X can enable many convenience applications related to transportation.
Cellular V2X is an umbrella term for 3GPP-defined V2X technologies, encompassing both LTE- and forthcoming 5G-based V2X systems. This white paper discusses the potential role of 3GPP solutions to support V2X and the added value that could be provided by cellular operators.
