Abstract (300 words maximum)

Vehicle to everything (V2X) is one of the most prevalent communication systems implemented in smart city infrastructure. Given the success of implementing V2X in automobiles, there has been interest in applying this technology to maritime applications. Unfortunately, current methods require the use of sizeable vessels and large open bodies of water. The goal of this project is to develop a portable, cost effective V2X platform that can be used on small bodies of water. This platform was equipped with various sensors and radios that facilitate autonomous movement and V2X research.
