Ericsson, Orange and PSA Group to collaborate on 5G connected car

LinkedIn +

Ericsson, Orange and PSA Group are to conduct a 5G technology pilot for automotive applications. The Towards 5G connected car partnership aims to leverage 4G to 5G technology evolution to address connected vehicle requirements such as an intelligent transport system (ITS) to improve road safety, new automotive and in-car services.

The partnership is technically focused on vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-everything architecture and real-time performances for the deployment of ITS and connected services in vehicles. Initial tests use an end-to-end architecture system with LTE technology and will evolve to LTE-V and 5G technology.

First-use cases on the cooperative ITS have been defined and are currently tested on the field test track such as ‘see through’ between two connected vehicles on a road; and ‘connected emergency vehicle’, aimed at notifying, in real-time, emergency vehicle approach.
