This special session will be dedicated to advances in 5G V2X communications and the vision of deploying such advances in connected and autonomous cars. With the development of ultra-low latency, extremely high reliability and massive device access in 5G, the ambitions for smart driving applications will soon become reality. Therefore, the session brings together experts from telecom and automotive industry to discuss:
– What are the desired use cases in the connected and autonomous cars and when are we expecting them?
– What are the challenges for telecommunication network, for device manufacturers as well as car manufacturers, and how each sector is addressing those?
– What is the status of current standards and spectrum regulations in supporting those challenges?
– What are the lessons learnt from experimentations?
