Vision and Mission
Connected Mobility For People, Vehicles and Transport Infrastructure
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.
5GAA bridges the automotive and telecommunication industries in order to address society’s connected mobility and road safety needs with applications such as automated driving, ubiquitous access to services, integration into intelligent transportation and traffic management.
5GAA’s contribution focusses on:
- evolving, testing and promoting cellular-based communications
- supporting standardisation
- accelerating global deployment and commercial availability
