Title :

C-V2X : Cellular Vehicle-to-Everything



V2X will be a key technology for vehicles to communicate with each other and everything around them - enabling safer, more autonomous vehicles of the future. As an interactive communication sensor, V2X complements the capabilities of other ADAS sensors. With improved range, reliability and cost efficiency, C-V2X is gaining momentum and ecosystem support for enhanced safety services and brings new capabilities for autonomous driving with its forward compatible evolution to 5G NR C-V2X. In this talk, we will introduce GPP R14/R15 based C-V2X technology and also provide insights into the upcoming R16 NR V2X.
