By 2027, 30% of V2X Applications will be Non-safety Related, Driven by Third-party Developer Ecosystem

Oyster Bay, New York - 23 Aug 2013

The share of non-safety V2X applications will grow from less than 10% in 2018 to 30% in 2027 as the V2X application ecosystem becomes more mature. Standardization, the adoption of open platforms, and the creation of a thriving third party developer environment will be key requirements to drive innovation and support monetization of the V2X industry.

“The unique characteristics of DSRC communication technology in terms of short response times, security, and reliability, allows the deployment Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) and Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) applications in a large number of use cases and scenarios, including intersection collision warnings and avoidance, green light optimum speed advisory, in-vehicle signage, autonomous driving, ETC, and motorbike detection. V2V applications such as Cooperative Adaptive Cruise Control (C-ACC), Blind Spot (BSD), and Lane Change Warnings (LCW) will be an alternative for ADAS technology provided reliable high-precision positioning technology is available. But V2V will also encroach on cellular, with non-safety infotainment applications such as car-to-car / peer-to-peer media sharing and traffic information,” says VP and practice director Dominique Bonte.

Once critical issue is related to the relative importance of V2V versus V2I and which technology should be rolled out and/or mandated first. While V2V is easier and cheaper to implement on a large scale, only requiring vehicles to be equipped with $100 V2V modules, low initial penetration levels would dramatically limit its usefulness, unless aftermarket or even smartphone-based DSRC solutions would accelerate uptake. On the other hand, while deploying V2I roadside infrastructure is more expensive and complex, V2I features would be available from day one on vehicles equipped with DSRC modules.

ABI Research’s “V2V and V2I Applications and Use Cases” study covers V2X technology characteristics; application categories and segmentation; alternative and competing technologies such as ADAS, handsets, and cellular, forecasts, V2X ecosystem dynamics; and a detailed description of 30 V2X applications.
