HARMAN launches new dual-mode V2X system; DSRC and C-V2X

HARMAN International, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., unveiled a new Dual-Mode V2X system. The flexible telematics system features both software and hardware and taps into DSRC and cellular (5G) Vehicle-to-Everything (C-V2X) networks, removing the guesswork for numerous safety system setups.

V2X communication refers to the compatible transfer of data between a connected vehicle and its surroundings, including other vehicles on the roadway, infrastructure and even pedestrians. Currently, there are two standards that support this communication: DSRC, which is based on Wireless LAN-like technology, and C-V2X, which is part of the 5G mobile network standard.

The availability of both DSRC and C-V2X varies by region and can cause significant guesswork for automakers looking to launch V2X features, such as improved blind spot warnings, adaptive cruise control and traffic sign recognition.

With the development of HARMAN’s Dual-Mode V2X system automakers can now leverage over-the-air commands to select which of the two standards will be implemented on each vehicle. As a result, this technology offers a cost effective solution for automakers by eliminating compliance guesswork while improving road safety and enhancing overall user experience.
