Vision and Mission
Building the future of connected mobility
Vehicles sharing information to make transportation safer, greener, and more enjoyable are at our doorstep. The technologies associated with this concept are collectively known as Cooperative Intelligent Transportation Systems (C-ITS). The impact on road safety alone is sufficiently important to make C-ITS a priority. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), there were roughly 1.25 million road traffic fatalities worldwide in 2013 with another 20–50 million injured or disabled through traffic accidents.
A key enabling technology of C-ITS is wireless communication, covering vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication, vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communication, vehicle-to-network (V2N), and vehicle-to-pedestrian (V2P) communication. Collectively, these wireless transactions are referred to as V2X communication (vehicle-to-everything).
The 5GAA supports the idea that 5G will be the ultimate platform to enable C-ITS and the provision of V2X. 5G will be able to better carry mission-critical communications for safer driving and further support enhanced V2X communications and connected mobility solutions.
Our mission is to bridge the automotive and telecommunications industries in order to embrace and accelerate the global deployment of intelligent transport and communications solutions. Through this, we aim to address society’s connected mobility and transport safety needs.
We will achieve our mission by:
- Developing, testing, and promoting communications solutions
- Initiating their standardisation and relevance for global market penetration and ensuring commercial availability of relevant applications such as autonomous driving, ubiquitous access to services and integration into smart city and intelligent transportation
- Defining and harmonising use cases, business and go-to-market models for automotive and intelligent mobility applications, including rental cars, car sharing and electric vehicles
- Elaborating technology selection and a roadmap evolution strategy including spectrum allocation requirements
