According to Autotalks' CTO, "in order to minimize accidents, injuries and loss of lives, all vehicles should be able to communicate in a single language. It is unacceptable that vehicles using 5G-based V2X won't talk with vehicles that are equipped with DSRC V2X and vice-versa. Even in a market that considers adopting 5G V2X, one significant vehicle manufacturer that adopts DSRC is enough to make harmonization critical. For example, Volkswagen just announced its plan to install DSRC in in its 2019 Golf model. The largest OEM in Europe boldly decided to protect its customers, and other OEMs would have to adjust, if they want their V2X communication to be effective. "
According to Haran's proposal, "to prevent an entanglement, it is necessary to convene a V2X harmonization roundtable discussion with all the business and technology players in the V2X arena, including cellular operators, car manufacturers and technology vendors – whether they stand for DSRC or 5G. All these players must find a responsible way to join forces for the sake of the public."
Haran continued: "Since we have deep knowledge of various V2X technologies and business motivation of all stakeholders, in the roundtable Autotalks will be able to propose very clear and specific ideas for complying V2X configurations and technical structures. Our proposals can help maximize vehicle safety while allowing cellular operators, vehicle manufacturers and electronics companies to profit financially."
