“V2X: A CYCLISTS’S CO- PILOT” FACT SHEET

V2X, otherwise known as Vehicle-to-Everything, is a technology which allows vehicles to communicate with their surroundings. V2X communications systems are mainly used for the purpose of increasing safety and preventing collisions through a number of applications. These applications provide drivers with instant, highly accurate alerts (basic safety messages shared 10 times a second from the vehicles or immediately from nearby pedestrian or cyclists) so that the driver can take action to avoid a crash or reduce the severity of injuries or damage to vehicles and infrastructure.
