This is a CDOT/Panasonic Prototype System vehicle-to-everything V2X technology. Purportedly for Traffic Safety reasons. This new radio system is designed for 2-Way communication between Vehicle and CDOT broadcast safety notifications. In the future…likely use for driverless vehicle’s if/when that ever comes to pass on our Interstate roads.

Special Thanks to young Ham Radio Operator Matt – K0LWC who was the first to “ID” this new Radio system!
