Cellular V2X Communication

Cellular V2X (Vehicle to Everything) communication has strong potential to become a key enabler for automated driving and intelligent mobility. C-V2X allows to communicate via the LTE network using the 3GPP Release 14, and in future, the 5G mobile network. Cellular V2X is also designed to directly connect vehicles with each other as well as with the infrastructure and further road users. Even in areas without mobile network coverage, C-V2X communication allows an exchange of time sensitive and safety critical information, for example about warnings of potentially hazardous situations. First tests have proven the reliability and speed of cellular V2X applications for LTE V2X direct communication (PC5) as well as LTE V2X indirect communication (Uu). The tests, conducted in China’s National Intelligent Connected Vehicle Pilot Zone in Shanghai named “A Nice City”, showed an average latency of 11 ms and single event message latencies as low as 8 ms were achieved. Throughout the tests the packet reception rate was nearly 100 percent. The joint tests leveraged Huawei’s prototype C-V2X module and infrastructure for use cases such as Emergency Brake Light and Stationary Vehicle Warning.
