Vehicular communications provide effective means to improve road safety and traffic efficiency, as well as high definition on board infotainment services, capable of scaling well from current connected cars to future autonomous driving. The Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) and the Long-Term Evolution Vehicle-To-Everything (LTE-V2X) are recognized as being the two most promising technologies to support such communications. Since more than one decade, DSRC has been actively promoted by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI), the Japanese Association of Radio Industries and Businesses (ARIB), the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and other standards organizations. More recently, LTE-V2X is being proposed as an
alternative technology based on cellular standards by the Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP). This article analyzes the ready-to-deploy DSRC and the promising LTE-V2X, compares them according to a set of significant
technical and non-technical aspects, and outlines the limitations of both technologies.
