V2V- Vehicle to vehicle

V2i – Vehicle to Infrastructure

V2X – Vehicle to Everything

Safety of driver and passengers depends on fast and secure communication system which can be provided by blockchain technology because cloud based shared ledger platforms of this technology can facilitate the encryption, transportation, distribution and storage of vast data which are generated by connected cars per moments.
