In April, Audi announced it is partnering with Navistar, owners of IC Bus and International truck companies, to develop and demonstrate C-V2X (Cellular vehicle-to-everything) improvements in an effort to augment vehicle and school bus safety. The C-V2X technology standard enables signals to be sent to and from a vehicle to other vehicles in the area, as well as pedestrians/cyclists and stationary objects like traffic lights.

Audi aims to deploy C-V2X technology in its vehicles to provide real-time warnings to improve road safety and prevent collisions—like alerting Audi drivers to nearby stopped school busses and providing directional information of incoming emergency vehicles. It will also be used to warn school bus and emergency vehicle drivers of fast-approaching vehicles near intersections and bus stops.

Audi vehicles already implement numerous leading-edge automotive technologies, including advanced connectivity, navigation, and driving aids.
