C-V2X is designed to enable reliable, low-latency direct communication between VRUs, vehicles, and roadside infrastructure in the 5.9-GHz ITS spectrum without reliance on cellular networks. C-V2X is also globally compatible with 5G networks and cloud-based APIs, enabling numerous capabilities with artificial intelligence/machine learning to enhance safety features and vehicle automation.

The Spoke solution is intended to provide direct communication between road users, vehicles, and roadside infrastructure without the need for a cellular network, delivering the level of dependable real-time information critical for safety applications. This capability provides critical augmentation to other advanced driver assistance systemssensors, such as cameras, radar, and lidar.

machine learning
Machine learning (ML) is a subset of artificial intelligence (AI) that focuses on the development of algorithms and statistical models that enable computers to improve their performance on a specific task through experience or training. Instead of being explicitly programmed to perform a task, a machine learning system learns from data and examples. The primary goal of machine learning is to develop models that can generalize patterns from data and make predictions or decisions without being...
