According tomedia reports, the vehicle-to-outside information exchange (V2X) system will allow cars to talk to infrastructure, traffic lights and other vehicles on the side of the road in the name of safe and unobstructed traffic. To that end, Hyundai motor is already funding Autotalks, an Israeli-based V2X start-up, and plans to start installing V2X in cars as early as 2021.
Autotalks is understood to have been developing a $100 V2X device that can achieve a target of 10 deliveries per second of the car’s position, direction and speed. If another car has a system that can read these signals, it can warn drivers when two cars collide because they can’t see each other’s cars.
Although the safety benefits of those who accepted the system early on received it were minimal, there were few other cars on the road that ran such systems and there were no facilities to support them on the side of the road. But it is believed that over time, Autotalks will eventually bring great benefits to drivers.
