Auto Industry to Deploy V2X Radios on Cars, Infrastructure
April 27, 2020—The auto industry has united in a huge step towards the widespread deployment of vehicle-to-everything technologies in the U.S., reported the Alliance for Automotive Innovation.
The auto industry announced a commitment to deploy at least 5 million V2X radios on vehicles and roadway infrastructure within the next five years.
The commitment is predicated on the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) maintaining the entire 75 MHz within the 5.9 GHz Safety Spectrum for transportation safety and permitting cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) technology to operate alongside Dedicated Short Range Communication (DSRC).
Prior to this commitment, vehicle manufacturers that have already deployed or announced V2X deployments accounted for more than 60 percent of the automotive market share in the U.S.
