The research efforts on cellular vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communications are gaining momentum with each passing year. It is considered as a paradigm-altering approach to connect a large number of vehicles with minimal cost of deployment and maintenance. This article aims to further push the state-of-the-art of cellular V2X communications by providing an optimization framework for wireless charging, power allocation, and resource block assignment. Specifically, we design a network model where roadside objects use wireless power from RF signals of electric vehicles for charging and information processing. Moreover, due to the resource-constraint nature of cellular V2X, the power allocation and resource block assignment are performed to efficiently use the resources. The proposed optimization framework shows an improvement in terms of the overall energy efficiency of the network when compared with the baseline technique. The performance gains of the proposed solution clearly demonstrate its feasibility and utility for cellular V2X communications.
