Cellular Vehicle-to-Everything – Enabling Intelligent Transport
More than 800 mobile operators around the world have deployed networks that are compatible with the 3GPP standards, enabling them to benefit from global interoperability and economies of scale. In June 2017, 3GPP finalised Cellular Vehicle-to-Everything (C-V2X) technology in Release 14 of its standards. Based on LTE, this cellular technology is designed to deliver safety and information services to vehicles, paving the way for the development of cooperative intelligent transport systems (C-ITS) that reduce congestion and pollution, while making travel faster and more efficient.
This paper explains what C-V2X is, what it does, how it works, why it is important and why it is well suited to enabling communications between vehicles, roadside infrastructure and other road users. The paper is written as a guide for automakers, mobile operators, equipment vendors, policymakers and regulators.Back
