Connected vehicles add a lot of comfort when it comes to state-of-the-art infotainment. But they also have the potential to make driving safer and more efficient by communicating directly with other vehicles, the infrastructure and the cloud. With Vehicle-to-X (Vehicle-to-Everything) communication, cars or commercial vehicles can exchange real-time traffic updates and road hazard information and enhance future safety assist functions.
DSRC and C-V2X Integration. Continental’s Hybrid V2X solution integrates technologies for 4G and 5G network access, Dedicated Short Range Communication (DSRC) and Cellular-V2X (C-V2X) communication. This helps vehicle manufacturers to overcome a big challenge, when deploying V2X on a global scale: Some regions prefer the established DSRC and others lean towards the Cellular-V2X standard. With our hybrid V2X solution, the same hardware and software platform can be used to support either communication standard, reducing cost and complexity for a global application of V2X communication.
