5G Key Technologies for Connected Vehicles


Already 2015 in the White Paper of the 5GPP it was written: “The automotive industry is currently undergoing key technological transformations, as more and more vehicles are connected to the Internet and to each other, and advance toward higher automation levels.” Since then many projects were launched, often in cooperation between automotive and telecom industry. This interworking lead to new technology approaches facilitating new use cases in the automotive domain. Different concepts focusing on direct communication between vehicles and network were evaluated and generated new scientific questions. Beside ultra-reliable low-latency communication also precise positioning, security and many other aspects are driver for advanced development. Multiple Vehicle-to-anything (V2X) technologies are addressing the vision and requirements of connected driving applications.

The workshop will focus on the latest findings about wireless communications systems for V2X communications. The discussion is also expected to include proposals for their enhancement, with focus on physical, access, and network layer. In addition, the discussion of future applications enabled by 5G connected vehicles or results from relevant field trials could add value to this workshop.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

– Requirements and applications for vehicular communications
– V2X advanced use cases
– Hybrid V2X communications
– 5G C-V2X, enhancements to IEEE 802.11p, and IEEE 802.11bd
– Propagation, vehicle channel measurements and models for 5G
– Ad-hoc networking of vehicles
– New PHY/MAC solutions for connected vehicles
– Edge processing, SDN, NFV in context of vehicular communications
– Secure and privacy-preserving vehicular communications
– Inter-operator aspects
– 5G Network slicing for connected driving
– Central and decentral radio resource management (RRM)
– Artificial Intelligence (AI) / machine learning in V2X networks
– 5G mmWave communications in vehicular context
– Vehicle-to-VRU (Vulnerable Roadside Users) communications
– Impact of communications impairments on vehicle control performance
– Multi-connectivity in context of V2X
– Vehicular positioning
