The automotive industry is evolving toward connected and autonomous vehicles that offer many benefits, such as improved safety, less traffic congestion, less environmental impacts and lower capital expenditure. A key enabler of this evolution is vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communication, which allows a vehicle to communicate with other vehicles, pedestrians, road-side equipment and the Internet. With V2X, critical information can be exchanged among vehicles to improve situation awareness and thus avoid accidents. Furthermore, V2X provides reliable access to the vast information available in the cloud. For example, real-time traffic, sensor and high-definition mapping data can be made available, which is useful not only for today’s drivers but will be essential for navigating self-driving vehicles in the future.
