Audi ready to launch C-V2X technology to improve safety on the road
C-V2X stands for «cellular vehicle-to-everything” and refers to a technology that allows vehicles to communicate with the environment around them.
This includes other road users, but also connected infrastructure such as traffic lights, traffic and construction signs, connected parking spaces, and traffic guidance systems.
C-V2X communication is based on cellular technology and offers two complementary transmission modes.
C-V2X direct communications refers to directly connecting the vehicle with its immediate surroundings. Data is transmitted in the globally harmonized 5.9 GHz ITS frequency band and does not rely on the cellular network.
In contrast, C-V2X network communications uses the cellular network to extend the transmission radius for telematics or infotainment, for example.
The Audi A7 L and A6 L models utilize both C-V2X transmission modes.
For the first time, the module in China now also sends and receives data via a 5G network.
