V2X (vehicle to everything) communication refers to a new vehicular networking technology that allows moving vehicles to directly communicate with each other in an “ad-hoc” or “machine-to-machine” manner, as well as with access points installed on lamp poles or roadside infrastructure.

This technology promises to enhance road safety, cut driving time, save fuel, augment GPS, drive big data, enable gantry-less road pricing, connect AV and EV (autonomous/electric vehicles). International standards (DSRC, Cellular V2X) have been defined. Market products have emerged.

In this talk, Dr Guan Yong Liang will give an overview of a campus-wide V2X test-bed jointly developed by NTU and NXP, the full-stack applications that the test-bed is capable of supporting, the V2X standardisation landscape around the world, future outlook and challenges.
