Free 60-Minute Webinar

Date: Thursday, June 16, 2016
Time: 1 p.m. EDT / 10 a.m. PDT
Sponsor: u-blox

Connected cars and V2X — connectivity between vehicles and infrastructure — lie around the next bend in the road. Extensive research and development have prepared these revolutionary concepts for implementation very soon.

Join GPS World and our panel of expert presenters as we discuss:

  • Recent developments in — and the potential safety impact of — V2X technology.
  • The role of GNSS, and potential challenges in accuracy, reliability, jamming and spoofing.
  • How radar, lidar, cameras, dedicated short range communications (DSRC) and V2X will combine to create advanced Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS).
  • Potential regulations and aftermarket devices.
