Audi of America, Applied Information, Blue Bird, Fulton County School System, City of Alpharetta, and Temple, Inc. are working to reduce injuries and fatalities in school zones and bus stops using Qualcomm and Commsignia C-V2X technologies.
Audi of America and partners Applied Information, Blue Bird, Fulton County School System, City of Alpharetta, and Temple, Inc. have completed a cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) initial deployment aimed at helping to prevent some of the more than 25,000 injuries and 100 fatalities that occur in school zones and at school bus stops in the U.S. annually. The continued refinement of the technology will enable communities to begin to lay the groundwork for integration with future production vehicles.
