V2X Connected Technology
By 2022, it is estimated that there will be 105 million connected vehicles on the road “talking” to each other and the roads, producing the nation’s largest data stream up to 150 petabytes annually which is equal to 15,000 years of television content. Managing and making sense of that data is critical not only for managing congestion but for improving roadway safety and saving lives.
The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) and The Ray are jointly partnering with Panasonic to create a vehicle-to-everything (V2X) data ecosystem that will enable Georgia’s first connected interstate roadway. In addition to several roadside units along The Ray that will receive connected vehicle information, Panasonic is building their CIRRUS V2X (vehicle-to-everything) platform, or the “brain”, enabling Georgia DOT to leverage the real-time, location-specific data to improve roadway safety, ease congestion, identify maintenance needs and roadway interruptions.
