Connected driving: 5G increases safety and comfort on the road
Networked driving is a fundamental component of the mobility solutions of the future. The new 5G mobile radio standard enables efficient Vehicle-to-X communication (V2X). This means that other road users and the road infrastructure can be intelligently networked with the vehicle.
Due to the low latency times offered by the new 5G mobile radio standard, subscriber positions and environment information can be exchanged with the vehicle in real time - an essential prerequisite for networked driving. Among other things, networked driving increases traffic safety: the vehicle technology communicates via mobile radio with other vehicles, trucks, cyclists or pedestrians as well as with traffic lights, traffic signs or barriers. If obstacles suddenly appear, the car not only warns the occupants but also initiates its own measures in real time.
In smart cities and megacities, networked driving will help to improve mobility and relax road traffic in the future. Intelligent vehicle coordination equalizes traffic and drastically minimizes the potential for traffic jams and accidents. Modern V2X technologies can also make an important contribution to the environment, as fuel consumption and driving behavior can be analyzed and controlled even more precisely. At the same time, networked driving with new information and entertainment systems provides a better driving experience and more comfort.
