Completed Work Items – 2021
- Gather evidence of the environmental benefits associated with C-V2X and assist in developing this evidence into a compelling narrative.
- Assess the benefits of C-V2X deployment (both LTE-V2X and 5G-V2X direct and network-based communications) in terms of emission reduction by 2050 in Europe (and for US and Asia) considering various positive and negative externalities.
- Identify and investigate further potential enhancements needed to provide Predictive Quality of Service (QoS) for C-V2X, investigate interoperability of network slices, and provide relevant recommendations to standards developing organizations (SDOs) and industry forums, e.g. 3GPP, ETSI, ISO and GSMA.
- Demonstrate the use of multi-access edge computing (MEC) technology for automotive services, for example, when two distinct automotive vendors can truly test at least three use cases involving two distinct mobile network operators (MNOs) employing the network infrastructure provided by two distinct infrastructure vendors.
- Increase the flexibility of the current network service architecture, reduce the deployment effort, and increase the interoperability among different stakeholders in the system.
- Describe how existing 3GPP methods reduce and improve service interruption due to network reselection.
- Provide an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) view on current and desired network reselection.
- Close the gap of the first spectrum needs study by analyzing several advanced use cases and consider additional items such as security overheads in a second release.
- Prepare a report which describes the 5GAA’s 5.9 GHz radio channel deployment options for use by LTE-V2X and NR-V2X across all regions, and describe relevant changes to existing regulatory frameworks – or the introduction of new regulatory frameworks – which may be required across all regions.
- Update Use Case Technical Reports with updated use case descriptions and develop a white paper for the Wave 2 of use cases.
- Provide a new set of use cases with their corresponding service level requirements (SLRs) to be summarized into a new TR.
- Study and describe specific and technology dependent use case implementations that fulfil the service level requirements (SLRs) as defined in the technology agnostic 5GAA use case descriptions.
- Develop corresponding descriptions for three exemplary use cases: Left Turn Assist (LTA), (Electronic) Emergency Brake (light) Warning (EEBL), and Traffic Jam Warning and Route Information.
- Define a standardized test method and metrics for vehicular antennas with the dominant emittance toward the outside of the vehicle, focusing on vehicular antennas for telecommunications (2G, 3G, 4G, 5G (< 7.125GHz)), vehicular antennas for direct communication between vehicles to road infrastructure (operating in the designated ITS frequency spectrum (5.9GHz range)), GNSS antennas and 3D-measurements (vehicle-mounted antenna element)
- Focus on positioning method for vehicles and vulnerable road users (VRUs) and study both positioning methods employing cellular signals (5G/LTE/C-V2X) and the positioning methods integrated with other technologies.
- Study the requirements of positioning, build the understanding of positioning system framework, and offer the corresponding technologies according to the requirements and environments.
