V2X enables autonomy but offers immediate benefit. Recent tests are the basis for a planned Rotterdam-Vienna corridor and pending U.S. regulation. While simTD employed 120 special cars, SafetyPilot relies on after-market units in 3000 vehicles. Regulators (except Japan) have agreed on 5.9 GHz spectrum and 802.11p protocol. How will WiFi-based V2X complement LTE and satellite? Europe plans source-address transmission for tolling, while U.S. envisions anonymous broadcasts. Discussions are underway about security and privacy via PKE and location-based extensions to DNS. Linux tools for remote configuration, logging and updates now apply to fleets. Many manufacturers sell Linux-based in-vehicle and road-side radios. Higher-level Dedicated Short Range Communication, unlike usual WiFi, uses a more efficient protocol than IPV6 for briefer transmissions. What is the state of Linux support?
