    Many groups around the world are working on Intelligent Transportation Systems, to reduce the 1.3 million fatalities each year. In North America, ITS America https://www.itsa.org/, in Europe Car2Car https://www.car-2-car.org/i... , and in cellular 3GPP http://www.3gpp.org/.

    In 2010, IEEE 802.11p was adapted for Vehicle 2 Vehicle radio together with a Dedicated Short Range Communications software, and extensively tested in the US and Europe http://www.itsg5-ready-to-r... Now 3GPP is defining C-V2X based on cellular networks and cellular technology to fill the same missions as US DSRC. And IEEE 802.11 is starting a Next Generation Vehicular (NGV) radio project https://mentor.ieee.org/802...
    I work in IEEE 802.11 on radios, and my company submitted a DSRC radio proposal to FCC labs for testing. All the DSRC prototypes did what they said, they each said different things ;-)

    I hope that the vehicle radios interoperate, and drivers/vehicles are more aware of their surroundings.

    It is nice to see Ducati focusing on the future instead of worrying about being sold to the highest bidder.
