By 2025 every new car sold will be connected to the Internet, leading to a disruptive change of road transportation, but also resulting in diverse challenges regarding Vehicle-to-Everything Communication (V2X). For example, fully connected cars with the internet use the V2X as the underlying technology. V2X refers to the connection of a vehicle (i.e., car) with other participants or the infrastructure in road transportation whereby communication is established through various forms, including wireless communication via a network connection.V2X can not only improve safety, increase traffic efficiency, but also be the foundation for diverse, innovative services that will disrupt our understanding of road transportation. However, the connectivity of vehicles with the transport infrastructure or other vehicles can also create challenges, for example, in terms of data security. A secure and trustworthy connection has to be established since attacks targeting the infrastructure can have serious consequences such as mass accidents. Since market penetration has not yet been achieved, it must be questioned what causes the implementation and active utilization of the V2X solution in the transport infrastructure to fail.


The goal of the thesis is to get an overview of the status quo of challenges and benefits of V2X technology while interacting with the different touch points in the road infrastructure. For this purpose, not only existing literature can be used, but also the knowledge of industry experts or the acceptance and mindset of consumers towards the V2X technology.
