Working Groups

Working Groups

5GAA’s short and long term goals contribute to the same ambition: Connected Mobility and touch upon many of the ecosystem’s components.

Working Groups

Define end-to-end view on use cases and derive technical requirements and performance indicators for the certification of connected mobility solutions (e.g. on communication architecture, radio protocols, radio parameters, frequency spectra and carrier aggregation combinations). Ensure interoperability for V2X and other affected technologies.

Tim Leinmüller Julia Rainer
Chair Vice-chair

Define, develop and recommend system architectures and interoperable end-to-end solutions to address use cases and Services of Interest. Reviewing currently available solutions in technical areas such as wireless air interface technologies, wireless network deployment models, radio access networks and networked clouds, connectivity and device management or security, privacy and authentication.

Chan Zhou Heijin Kim
Chair Vice-chair

Evaluate and validate end-to-end solutions through testbeds. Globally orchestrating and harmonising conformity and interoperability assessments to ensure that new C-V2X products conform to existing standards and are interoperable with each other. Manage regional interoperability event programmes in cooperation with regionally established organisations. Promote commercialisation and standardisation via pilots and large-scale trials by selecting the use cases in conjunction with go-to-market strategies. This includes multi-phase / multi-year planning with prioritisation.

1
Engage with road operators to fully integrate the road infrastructure
Digitalised road infrastructure is central for increased road safety and traffic efficiency, paving the way for automated mobility, especially in smart cities. 5GAA works closely withroad operators to develop the digital interfaces between vehicles and traffic infrastructure, management, and urban planning. The goal is to offer high efficiency and scalable operations, at reduced cost.
2
Accelerate evolution of cellular technologies towards 5G V2X
The accelerated technology evolution to 5G supports the growing connectivity needs for automotive applications.The increased functionality and performance of C-V2X are paving the way to unleash the full power of such connectivity. Backwards compatibility within the C-V2X family and interworking between mobile networks and roadside infrastructure will deliver important connectivity solutions.
3
Foster advanced positioning solutions for all road users & study related business models
Precise positioning is a crucial requirement from the C-V2X related ecosystem for both vehicles and vulnerable road users (VRU) enabling detection and protection. Increased accuracy, positioning reliability, path prediction algorithms, and use of new capabilities to transfer GNSS correction data will help to boost the accuracy and consistency.
4
Enable smart devices to deliver services protecting pedestrians, cyclists, etc.
Half of today’s accidents and fatalities involve VRUs. As the vast majority of VRUs carry smart devices, this can be leveraged to reduce the number of accident and fatalities by introducing C-V2X smart devices (C-V2X direct and/or mobile network communications), accelerating the penetration rate of vehicles combining C-V2X safety services with innovative use of road infrastructure and vehicle sensors.
5
Satisfy business needs for interoperation between and across ecosystem partners
Reaching a seamless flow of relevant business process information, including road traffic and safety data, between commercial and non-commercial organisations, require a global approach that enables flexible and agile business relations. 5GAA promotes an information sharing economy between the various stakeholders and value chains, leveraging modern interworking methods.
6
Leverage distributed cloud and edge computing capabilities
The dynamics of communication and the need for ultra-reliability,specifically for safety, can only be met with a flexible service architecture. Dynamically configurable network and distributed computing architectures will deliver consistent quality of service along transportation paths, depending on road user demand, with increased security, scalability and reliability.
7
Build upon cellular network deployments to fast track new mobility services
Cellular commercial networks are already widely deployed today connecting millions of vehicles with a strong track record of interoperability and backward compatibility. 5GAA will support fast deployment of services, building upon C-V2X direct and mobile network communications synergies, also aiming at new services in legacy vehicles via smartphones and other aftermarket devices.
8
Build trust in the V2X ecosystem by improving the overall security and privacy
Security and privacy are key V2X market enablers. They form the baseline for the trust that market players place in the system, but also to gain customer acceptance. 5GAA intends to develop adaptable and configurable solutions for each region, leading toefficient and harmonised operational concepts and deployments.
