Vehicle-to-everything communication will transform the driving experience
More than 1.3 million people die on the roads every year. Safe, automated driving supported by Vehicle-to-Everything communications, or V2X, will improve driving comfort and has the potential to save lives by preventing many traffic accidents.
LTE V2X combined with Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC), provides a viable and cost-effective solution that can already now accelerate the adoption of Vehicle-to-Everything communications on the way to 5G.
Nokia MEC can rapidly process content at the very edge of the mobile network to significantly lower latency to below 20ms, giving extremely responsive control.
- 2015 Nokia, Deutsche Telecom, Continental and Frauenhofer institute demonstrated real-time communication between vehicles via the LTE Mobile Network on the A9 motorway in Germany
- In 2016 Bosch, Nokia and Deutsche Telekom set up a local cloud for accelerated exchange of information in time-critical accident situations
- Nokia Multi-access Edge Computing installed in China Mobile’s LTE network in collaboration with Continental and Fraunhofer
- From 2016 to 2018 Continental, Deutsche Telekom, Fraunhofer ESK, MHP and Nokia successfully concluded tests of connected driving technology on the A9 Digital Test Track in Germany, including Nokia’s MEC technology. The project report (in German) can be found here.
