IAFI Proposes Rapid Finalization of ITU Recommendations on 4G / 5G for Automated Vehicles, Telecom News, ET Telecom
“The current ITU recommendations on automated and intelligent vehicles all rely on a dedicated infrastructure. The new technology will use the existing 4G and 5G infrastructure to support vehicle automation by connecting vehicles to everything using standard LTE and 5G NR wireless technologies, ”said Bharat Bhatia, president of the foundation. ITU-APT.
According to Bhatia, the use of globally harmonized spectrum and technology in CV2X (Cellular Vehicle-to-Everything) applications will reduce the cost of vehicle automation, reduce harmful emissions and utilize the “Cooperative conscience”.
He said that various entities such as vehicles, road infrastructure and others can collect information about their local environment which can be processed and shared in order to provide intelligent services, such as cooperative collision warning.
The New Delhi-based industry body presented a contribution to the 39th meeting of ITU-R WP 5D, outlining their proposal.
ITU-R WP5D is responsible for all matters relating to the spectrum and technology of 4G and 5G mobile wireless services.
The IAFI also suggested the use of 5G technology for Industry 4.0, which will allow industries to “physically merge with digital processes” by connecting all sensors and actuators, machines and workers seamlessly.
He pointed out that 4G and 5G can support critical communications in verticals like healthcare, where the capabilities of fifth generation technology can be used for remote robotic surgery.
