CIECA Hosting July 25 Webinar on Collision Industry and ‘V2X’

Vehicle-to-Everything -- or V2X -- is connected vehicle technology that means driver convenience, better traffic flow and safer roads.


The Collision Industry Electronic Commerce Association (CIECA) announced the next CIECA Webinar will be held at 11 a.m. PT/1 p.m. CT/2 p.m. ET July 25: “Why the Collision Industry Should Be Interested in V2X.” The one-hour live broadcast will feature Arif K. Rafiq, transportation industry manager for Esri Canada.

All collision industry stakeholders, including CIECA members and non-members, are invited to attend.

“Connected vehicle technology means more than driver convenience and better traffic flow; it saves lives,” said Rafiq. “You may have heard of the magic that makes this happen; it is called V2X, or Vehicle-to-Everything.”

During the webinar, Rafiq will explore V2X, its related technologies and systems, and what this means for the collision industry.

“Can we leverage this technology even if we don't fully understand it?” said Rafiq. “This primer and discussion may inspire you.”

Rafiq advises governments on using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Linear Referencing Systems (LRS) to manage the roads, highways and public transport infrastructure around the world. 

He contributes to the management of the highway interstate network in the U.S., advocates for sustainable transport and road safety in southeast Asia, helps to improve multi-modal urban mobility in the Netherlands, and creates guidelines for connected and automated vehicles in Canada.
