Abstract: Most car manufacturers predict that in the first half of the next decade there will be fully autonomous vehicles on our roads. Such vehicles would have to communicate in order to mitigate problems caused by single-viewpoint approach. So there are a lot of researches and developments when it comes to communication layer of V2X (Vehicle-to-Everything), but there is still a lot to be done when it comes to data layer of this communication. This is why we propose using Semantic Web Technologies (SWT) to fill in gaps within data layer of V2X communication. By using SWT (Semantic Web Technologies) and Linked data, we plan to interconnect various data sources, in order to provide homogeneous way for connected autonomous vehicles (CAV) to access relevant information. Such information is currently contained in three distinctive type of sources. These are: Geo-stationary Static data sources (Maps, City models), Geostationary Dynamic data sources (IoT devices) and Non-geostationary Dynamic sources (Vehicles). Using SWT, our goal is to develop ontology(s), in such a way that in-vehicle algorithms can extract and process information about environment they are in, while taking into account available network bandwidth.
