‘Cellular Vehicle-to-Everything’ (C-V2X) allows vehicles to communicate with each other as well as their surroundings. During a live demo event in Berlin, the 5G Automotive Association (5GAA) gave a sneak peek into this technology.
“Connected mobility standards are no longer a vision for the future,” says Maxime Flament, Chief Technology Officer at 5GAA. “The solutions on show are ready to be deployed today and have huge industry momentum based on the forthcoming 5G capabilities. C-V2X technology is a key foundation for a safe and sound driving environment for pedestrians, bicyclists, motorcyclists, cars and commercial heavy trucks. Global field testing is already in its very final stages and the first solutions are now commercially available from multiple suppliers.”
The C-V2X demo included:
-Traffic Management Solutions: Signal Phase and Timing (SPaT) and Red-Light Violation Warning (RLVW) to Vehicle
-Traffic Management Solutions: Emergency Electronic Brake light (EEBL)/ Roadworks warning (RWW)
– Real Time Emergency Alerts: Vehicle-to-Network and Network-to-Vehicle services
-Live data capture and transmission
5GAA members including BMW Group, Daimler, Deutsche Telekom, Fraunhofer Institutes FOKUS and ESK, Ford, Huawei, Jaguar Land Rover, Nokia, Qualcomm and Vodafone participated in the demonstrations.
