About Us

Until now, the media fascination with autonomous vehicles has been focused on, well, the vehicle. And, rightfully so. Countless websites, magazines and B2B events showcase the innovation and advancements from Ford, GM, Waymo, Uber and hundreds of other transportation technology pioneers who are hard at work to reinvent transportation as we know it.

Our focus is different, and for that we have launched V2X Americas. V2X Americas is focused on the digital infrastructure for that digitalization of transportation. Not just Vehicle-to-Vehicle; but vehicle-to-infrastructure, vehicle-to-cloud; vehicle-to-pedestrian.

Our point of view is infrastructure first: including next gen wireless networks; computing infrastructure at the network edge; high-bandwidth roadside units; transportation management systems; low-latency cloud-based applications; and most importantly, innovation.

We’ve been involved with next generation networks since the late 1990s, and the early days of wireless and the mobile internet were a dress rehearsal for what is coming in the digital transformation of transportation. Next-generation networks will enable faster, more reliable data transmission and accelerate the deployment of better, safer autonomous vehicles – in the air and on the ground.

We have launched V2X Americas because we know that personal interaction and the power of technology demonstrations and networking will drive partnerships, alliances, education, information exchange and markets forward. We believe that innovation is better understood with a personal demonstration or explanation.

We look forward this new era in transportation, mobility, next generation networks, and all the opportunity that come from it. As I know you do too.
