Introducing Kyocera's patents: V2X technology

A technology of the future, which connects automobiles to all things

Expectations for the development of autonomous cars continue to grow. Communications technologies are essential for making autonomous cars possible. In the future when autonomous cars are commonly driving on public roads, vehicles will communicate with pedestrians' smartphones, with traffic signals and other infrastructure, and with other cars on the roads in order to ensure everyone's safety. Communications between cars and pedestrians, between cars and infrastructure, and between cars are generally referred to "V2X" or vehicle-to-everything.
