Vehicle-to-everything (V2X) is a vehicular communication system that integrates other more specific types of communication as V2I (vehicle-to-infrastructure), V2N (vehicle-to-network), V2V (vehicle-to-vehicle), V2P (vehicle-to-pedestrian), V2D (vehicle-to-device) and V2G (vehicle-to-grid). The Cellular V2X (C-V2X) is a 3GPP standard describing a technology to achieve the V2X requirements.  

According to the statistics, the global Top15 applicants for IoV-related patents are mainly auto parts companies and vehicle manufacturers. Among auto makers, Audi ranks fifth, Toyota eighth, Volkswagen ninth and Nissan tenth. However, Chinese automakers are not on the list.

In the Top14 applicants in China, half of them are communication enterprises such as Huawei and ZTE and they outperform, in rankings, the other half vehicle makers as a whole. There are two local automakers, Geely and Chery making the list, while Ford and Hyundai are rated number three and four. 

In addition, with regard to the remarkable intelligent driving technology, China represents about half of the total relevant patent applications in the world, and the overall authorization rate is close to 35%.
