UTAC CERAM hosted the first European demonstration of manufacturer interoperability on C-V2X technology – the direct communication standard between vehicles and their environment. This technology will be commercially available in vehicles in 2020.
This testing session of the direct communication technology between vehicles and their environment was organised by the worldwide association 5GAA (5G Automotive Association) on the Linas-Montlhéry proving ground. Six scenarios were presented with vehicles from the BMW, Ford and PSA groups:
- Lane turn assist
- Anticipation of emergency braking
- Detection of a pedestrian crossing the road
- Information acquisition of a traffic light
- Detection of a slow or stationary vehicle
