Nissan: Leading automotive, telecom and ITS companies betray initial announced mobile V2X trials in Japan

Posted on 11. Jan, 2018 by in Nissan Canada

TOKYO – Continental, Ericsson, Nissan, NTT DOCOMO, Inc., OKI and Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., a auxiliary of Qualcomm Incorporated (NASDAQ: QCOM), announced currently skeleton to lift out their initial Cellular Vehicle-to-Everything (C-V2X) trials in Japan. The design is to countenance and denote a advantages of C-V2X regulating approach communication record tangible by a 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) in their Release 14 specifications. The trials are designed to uncover a extended range, trustworthiness and latency advantages of C-V2X approach communications operated in 5 GHz band. Additionally, a C-V2X Trials are designed to denote a interrelated advantages of network-based communications utilizing LTE-Advanced (LTE-A). The hearing formula will assistance rise a ecosystem by providing inputs to a applicable stakeholders, including ITS-related organizations and supervision agencies, as we prepared for a connected automobile of a destiny and a industry’s evolutionary transition towards 5G New Radio (NR), a new tellurian mobile customary being tangible in 3GPP.

While complementing other Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) sensors, such as radar, lidar, and camera systems, C-V2X provides non-line-of-sight (NLOS) low latency recognition with longer operation and cloud capabilities, and designed to extend a vehicle’s ability to see, hear and promulgate serve down a road, even during blind intersections.

C-V2X radio record is state-of-the-art mobile record and is being certified for tellurian deployments, and leverages a tip covering protocols grown by a automotive attention over years of investigate to support new modernized end-to-end use cases. C-V2X approach communications provides extended operation and trustworthiness but relying on mobile network assistance or coverage.

Preparation work is good underway, with a hearing approaching to start in 2018, and a used cases are designed to concentration on Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V), Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) and Vehicle-to-Pedestrian (V2P) approach communications, as good as Vehicle-to-Network (V2N) operations over mobile network-based far-reaching area communications with cloud access. 

For a margin trials, Continental will implement a Qualcomm® C-V2X Reference Design, that facilities a Qualcomm® 9150 C-V2X chipset with integrated Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) capability to build connected automobile systems and confederate a systems into Nissan vehicles.  Nissan will perform V2X use box preference and rise exam scenarios with pivotal opening indicators (KPIs) for C-V2X record validation. OKI, one of a heading companies in ITS, will move their imagination in roadside section (RSU) infrastructure and applications to denote V2I as a viable record for modernized trade applications by integrating a Qualcomm® 9150 C-V2X chipset into their RSU. Ericsson, as one of a heading companies in record and use for telecommunications, will join a V2N use box contention deliberation multiple of approach communication and LTE-A network technologies. NTT DOCOMO will yield LTE-A network and V2N applications to denote a advantages of interrelated use of network-based communications for a accumulation of modernized automotive informational reserve use cases.

“Connecting vehicles is during a tip of a bulletin and with some-more than 20 years of cunning in a growth of telematics, over 30 million units shipped, and years of V2V reserve product growth culminating in accessible V2V communications offerings. We are prepared to entirely feat a intensity of mobile connectivity to yield modernized automobile functionalities. Along with Nissan, we devise to uncover that tighten team-work between automotive suppliers, OEMs, mobile operators, infrastructure and chipset suppliers is of high significance to serve allege and rise Cellular V2X,” pronounced Lars Schultheiss, clamp boss and conduct of business section Infotainment Connectivity during Continental in Japan.

“The C-V2X resolution is singular in that it, within a common record and eco-system, offers both network-based and approach communication for V2X services. With a network-based communication, there is a probability to yield trade reserve and trade potency services utilizing already existent coverage and invasion of mobile modems and smartphones. It also provides connectivity to several cloud-based services, providing a operation of applications and value-added services. In these trials, all stakeholders are benefaction to showcase a strength of a finish resolution covering both connectivity and opposite applications. Ericsson is contributing with heading 4G, 5G radio, and network imagination and by leveraging a bargain of a IoT ecosystem,” pronounced Erik Ekudden, arch record officer during Ericsson.

“We are gratified to have a event to attend in this C-V2X trial; we design this new communication record is designed to support us to offer new reserve and preference features,” pronounced Tetsuo Sasaki, General Manager, connected automobile and services engineering department, Nissan. “With a information done accessible by this real-world trial, we will be means to accelerate a growth to offer new services in a timely manner, once a 5G record is available.”

“This collaborative plan will move together a useful believe and knowledge of universe leaders in a automotive and telecom domains, and will be needed for all parties to underpin their roles in a epoch of connected cars toward softened highway reserve and comfort. NTT DOCOMO is energetic that a knowledge in telecommunications complement will be indispensable to maximize a values of C-V2X. This plan will set a transparent trail toward connected cars and roads of a destiny that materializes a energy of C-V2X,” pronounced Hiroshi Nakamura, Chief Technology Officer during NTT DOCOMO

“Towards a fulfilment of a connected automobile society, a functionalities of network infrastructure for V2X contingency be most some-more intelligent. With OKI’s clever lane record of ITS infrastructure deployment, we design to grasp good formula by this hearing per a qualification of V2X for ITS with a perspective to a expansion towards 5G in and with other member companies,” pronounced Yukio Kato, ubiquitous manager, amicable infrastructure solutions division, ICT business multiplication of OKI.

“We are gratified to be operative alongside such a energetic organisation of forward-thinking companies to denote a capabilities of C-V2X record in a initial announced Japanese trials. With a approach communications capabilities, C-V2X is ideally matched to be an critical cause in facilitating extended reserve alertness and motorist assistance. This Japan hearing is a miracle in a tellurian deployment of C-V2X record that is approaching to be featured in prolongation vehicles by 2020,” pronounced Nakul Duggal, clamp boss of product management, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.
