Connected Vehicles rely upon Internet of Things (IoT) technologies as well as Narrowband and Broadband Wireless communications in the form of Wide Area Networks (Cellular WAN), Local Area Networks (WiFi), and Personal Area Networks (Bluetooth).
Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) solutions help automobiles communicate with other vehicles on the road, allowing for greater visibility and situational awareness into the driving environment.
Integration with the non-vehicle industry vertical applications and services is realized through various Vehicle-to-Home (V2H), Vehicle-to-Device (V2D), and Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) solutions. Collectively speaking, the term Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) encompasses all of these technologies, use cases, applications, and services.
Some important aspects of the technology include:
- V2X market includes both V2V and Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) communications
- V2X technologies will have a greater role when it is integrated into autonomous cars
- V2X is a communications technology that enables a truly connected vehicle whereby it can communicate with other vehicles, traffic lights, toll gates, pedestrians, and even the owner's home
V2V and V2X technology promises to be a crucial part of the future of transport and the vehicles market. At its core, V2V is about public and personal safety as the technologies provide signaling and communications for collision avoidance and notice of potential hazards that may affect more than one vehicle. It is important to understand that V2X technologies and solutions also provide a foundation upon which commercial services and applications will be developed and supported.
