The weakness of short-range wireless signal and security issues will make a bad effect on the communication in Vehicle-to-Vehicle or Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2X). In this study, we proposed a system, based on Long Range (LoRa) protocol and Long Range Wide-Area Network (LoRaWAN), to reduce the latency of communication and minimize the data size in V2X networks. Through the experiment, it shows that the proposed system can enhance the overall performance and reduce the latency in V2X networks. Moreover, the security of transmitting data is increased.
