Delivering the world’s first commercial deployment of C-V2X solutions, in the city of Wuxi, China. Huawei with its partners deployed the Road Side Unit (RSU) in Wuxi, covering a total of 170 square kilometers of urban area, including 240 intersections, and 12,000 C-V2X users.
The RSU connects a variety of road traffic elements such as traffic lights, cameras, speed limit signs, original and after-market terminals etc., in conjunction with Huawei T-Box, to achieve vehicle-road coordination based on PC5 interface.
Delivering on the joint innovation of mobile and automotive communication technology, the C-V2X solution has created great value for assisted driving. Intelligent network connection and road coordination can effectively improve traffic safety, efficiency and reduce emissions. Road coordination can also reduce the cost of self-driving cars and enable assisting driving to achieve scaled commercialization earlier. Now 5 billion people and 100 million cars are connected through the mobile network.
The next top priority will be connecting road and vehicle, the combination of intelligent network and autonomous driving. It is necessary to develop synergistically a safe and efficient next generation transportation and accelerate the realization of future smart travel.
Within two years after the 3GPP international standard was frozen, the C-V2X industry has developed rapidly. So far, the members of C-V2X industry global promotion organization 5GAA (5G Automotive Association), has reached over 110 members including leading car manufacturers, telecom operators, automotive, telecommunications suppliers, application vendors research institutions, consulting agencies and many other ecosystem members.
Huawei is one of the C-V2X standard rapporteurs and co-founder of 5GAA. The company is also the only C-V2X end-to-end solution provider in the world. In recent years, Huawei has cooperated with Chinese and global partners to actively promote the C-V2X industry and technology.
