Two V2X Communication Standards Fight For Supremacy

DSRC was supposed to be the go-to communication technology for V2X with the Obama administration proposing to mandate the technology on every vehicle by 2023, except solidifying such a mandate has languished under the Trump administration. This has left automakers to their own devices in navigating V2X communications. Instead of using DSRC, automakers such as Ford have begun using cellular V2X, or C-V2X, a technology supported by China, according to a report from Automotive News that lays out many of the potential issues with multiple V2X standards.
