IDC PlanScape: V2X Connectivity for Smart Cities and Communities

This IDC PlanScape provides an in-depth look at the impact of 5G and V2X on transportation (e.g., automotive and Smart City) communications. This includes looking at deployment timelines, differences in protocols, the need for V2X with 5G, identifying key stakeholders to involve in V2X planning and deployment, and advice for technology buyers considering deploying roadside units."Industry and regulatory indecision have limited automotive manufacturers and cities from realizing the societal benefits of V2X; however, regulatory clarity should emerge in the next few years. Meanwhile, cities and road operators should begin preparing for deploying roadside units, which could prove complex and costly," says Ruthbea Yesner, vice president, IDC Government Insights.
