Live Trial of 5G Connected Car Concept in Blacksburg, Virginia | Video
Last March, the Commonwealth of Virginia held a live trial of a new driver and pedestrian safety concept that allows near-real-time notification of roadway hazards through 5G and edge technologies. The trial was one of the three conducted internationally by a historic public-private collaboration, organised by the 5G Automotive Association (5GAA) and eight member companies representing leading technology companies from around the globe. A related European live trial was conducted in 2021 in the city of Turin, Italy. The North American live trial, on the other hand, was conducted on the Virginia Smart Road operated by the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute in Blacksburg, VA. It was the first of its kind in North America.
