V2X is advancing as car manufacturers realize its life-saving potential, but barriers need to be overcome before everyone realizes safety benefits.
There are several technologies that Molex is considering that will take the connected vehicle to the next level. One of them is Vehicle to Everything (V2X) technology, which enables the communication from the vehicle to other road users (V2P –Vehicle to Pedestrians), to infrastructures (V2I) or other vehicles (V2V). This technology is designed to expand the senses of the vehicle and, as a result, provide the driver with information that could not be otherwise predicted or even captured by camera or lidar systems. Molex is already delivering a V2X antenna system to the market, warning the driver about dangerous situations, e.g., black ice on the road.
Adaptive/autonomous driving can reduce accidents and provide opportunities by overcoming several challenges in the automotive marketplace
