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.
