LTE and Car2x: Connected cars on the way to 5G

Safer roads, more enjoyable driving, lower emissions, more efficient road use – these are some of the gains that will be realised by applying advanced mobile communications to support the car and road transport industry. A breakthrough technology is Mobile Edge Computing, or cloudlets at the mobile edge, which enhance LTE. Field trials have shown how the technology’s ultra-low latency and high bandwidth redefine car2x use cases. For mobile network operators, the capabilities open up opportunities to gain a higher return from their LTE network investments. They also complement ITS G5/DSRC hot spot deployments. The talk will introduce the technology, present an overview about tests which were done at the end of last year at a German motorway and give an outlook.
