Day 3
Trials to accelerate the development of connected vehicles are due to start this year in California. The trials, at San Diego Regional Proving Ground, will encompass the first announced Cellular-V2X (C-V2X) trials in the US.

AT&T, Ford, Nokia and Qualcomm Technologies will be involved, as will intelligent transportation solutions provider McCain, which will facilitate the integration with existing and emerging traffic signal control infrastructure.

The aim is to demonstrate the potential of C-V2X technologies, including support for improved automotive safety, automated driving, and traffic efficiency. The trials will also be aimed at demonstrating to car-makers and road operators the anticipated cost-efficient benefits of embedded cellular technology in vehicles, as well as synergies between the deployment of cellular base stations and roadside infrastructure.

The testing is being undertaken with support from the San Diego Association of Governments, Caltrans and the City of Chula Vista.

Vehicles are using the cellular network for an increasing number of tasks, ranging from emergency calls to diagnostics and real-time traffic updates. Complemented by other advanced driver assistance systems, such as cameras,  radar and Lidar, C-V2X technology is designed to support 360-degree non-line-of-sight awareness, and is designed to extend a vehicle’s ability to understand the environment down the road, at blind intersections, or in bad weather.
