Avoidance of cyclist collisions thanks to vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communication

Developing the connectivity and automatization of vehicles represents a great opportunity to improve cycle safety. An Austrian consortium, led by Salzburg Research is working on innovative technologies to improve safety for vulnerable road users. Its focus is on finding opportunities for the cooperative detection of collision risks, as well as non-distracting warning concepts.
