For V2X, Ford relies on the cloud
After DSRC and C-V2X, Ford Motor Company is adding another flavor to the application world of automated vehicle communication: The company’s Local Hazard Information (LHI) function communicates its warnings to other cars exclusively via the cloud.

The Local Hazard Warning feature is activated via the FordPass Connect modem and is free for the first year after you buy a new Ford Puma. Customers can decide which data they want to share.

With the LHI system, Ford is adding another variant to the universe of V2X communication. Volkswagen's Golf VIII model, which has been on sale since last autumn, is also equipped with automatic radio communication for transmitting obstacles and danger spots; however, VW works with a system based on direct radio links between the cars and does not send any messages to the back end.

A video explaining the system can be found here:
