LG Electronics said on Thursday that it was developing an app that alerts smartphone users of traffic dangers.
Called Soft V2X (vehicle-to-everything), the app alerts the user of collision risks from nearby vehicles.

Soft V2X will help assist with safety for users from dangers that can pop up from blind sports, the South Korean company said.
