Vehicle-2-Everything (V2X) technology can make roads safer by allowing vehicles to communicate with each other. The goal of V2X is to reduce accidents where there is not a line-of-sight of other vehicles or road-users, such as at intersections, in harsh driving conditions, and around curves. The technology can reduce up to 94% of all unimpaired accidents in the US, resulting in saving 33,500+ lives a year. As well as provide extensive benefits for the environment and economic productivity. However, V2X relies on support from regulatory bodies to secure its effectiveness. In this talk, a tutorial on the technology is provided (DSRC, C-V2X), and the current status of V2X activity in the United States. A discussion on V2X will be shared along with some perspectives from the open-source community.
