Qualcomm and Visteon boost cellular V2X in its battle with 802.11p

The continued global schism between cellular and 802.11p WiFi for vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communications loomed large at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) earlier this month. The two highlights in this context were Qualcomm’s announcement of the first cellular C-V2X testing in Las Vegas in partnership with Ford, and Visteon Corporation’s launch of the first dual-mode V2X module supporting both options. Visteon’s module supports both the 3GPP’s Cellular-V2X (C-V2X) based on the earlier LTE-V2X and the IEEE’s somewhat confusingly named ITS-G5 utilizing the 802.11p WiFi, which is often known as DSRC in the US, after the RF band it is used in. The shared letters in 5G and ITS-G5 are a little confusing, because it is C-V2X rather than ITS-G5 that is…
