In September 2018, Autotalks, a long-time leader in the Dedicated Short-Range Communications (DSRC)/802.11p space, announced that their second-generation Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) chipset will support PC5 Cellular V2X (C-V2X). The CRATON2 and PLUTON2, through a firmware update, will now support both of the V2X technologies battling for supremacy in the automotive market. The new firmware will not permit both protocols to be enabled simultaneously; rather, it will allow Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) to opt either for 802.11p or for PC5 functionality via a software-defined toggle. This will allow OEMs to manufacture and certify a single V2X platform, which they can then deploy globally.
