At a live demo event in Berlin, the 5G Automotive Association (5GAA) presented a sneak peek of the cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) technologies ready to be deployed. 5GAA members, including BMW Group, Daimler, Deutsche Telekom, Fraunhofer Institutes FOKUS and ESK, Ford, Huawei, Jaguar Land Rover, Nokia, Qualcomm, and Vodafone, demonstrated C-V2X vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V), vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I), and vehicle-to-network (V2N) applications.
“Connected mobility standards are no longer a vision for the future,” said 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.”
