As cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) communication nears commercial readiness, the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) is investigating how the technology can address next generation vehicle use cases.

With its evolution to Release 16 5G NR, C-V2X will go from targeting basic safety improvements through superior non-line of sight performance, to a technology that transforms next generation vehicles, autonomous driving and road infrastructure.

In this 60-minute webinar, Qualcomm’s Shailesh Patil, Principal Engineer / Manager discuss how ‘Rel-14’, the initial phase of C-V2X, is gaining momentum, with expected commercial readiness around 2019.

Other talking points will include:

  • The role of C-V2X and 5G in enabling smarter transportation
  • How 5G NR C-V2X builds upon the powerful features standardized in Rel-15 for 5G NR, while benefiting from the learning and key features of Release 14/15 C-V2X
  • The new design paradigm that will be needed to make reliable communication possible for next generation vehicles
  • The advanced uses cases enabled by Rel-16 5G NR C-V2X, especially with added direct vehicle-to-vehicle communication capabilities
  • The work needed at the application layer to realise the benefits of the technology even with limited technology deployment
