The introduction of new advance technologies to connected and autonomous vehicle (CAV) sector will upgrade the market and will easily connect more consumers.
FREMONT, CA: The connected andautonomous vehicle (CAV) market has the potential to be worth £51 billion per year to the U.K. economy by 2030. The specialized team of CAV lawyers is working hard to work on groundbreaking projects. The success of the CAV sector mainly relies on safe, secure, and reliable communications infrastructure. Like other countries, the U.K. is also in the row to build this framework to connect more consumers as quickly as possible.
The U.K. National Infrastructure Commission, Phillip Graham, said in a Connected Britain conference that digital connectivity had become an essential commodity like water and fuel, and no longer a luxury. People will realize its importance when it will not be there in the time of need. He also urged for a national plan for high-speed broadband coverage for the whole country by 2033. To enable faster transfer speeds and better reliability, the industry needs to upgrade cabling infrastructure to fiber from traditional copper wire, added Graham.
To build better connectivity between vehicles and the environment, U.K. is planning to roll out a 5G network. Upgraded cablings will properly benefit the smart cities. The5G networkis blooming slowly in the country, speeding up the process partnerships are required between different areas of industries helped by technology and telecoms providers. This platform will also allow several companies to collaborate with various companies with which they would never work usually. 5G is not only the next generation of 4G communications, but it also provides a more efficient interface and enables a large number of devices to operate on a smaller number of an antenna.
The U.K. is a platform of several test beds for future transportation system; Smart Mobility Living Lab (SMLL) is one among them. The SMLL Project partners are Cisco, which has built the test bed technology; the London Legacy Development Corporation, an initiative set up to capitalize on the success of the city’s 2012 Olympics and D.G. Cities, an urban innovation company established by London’s Royal Borough of Greenwich, a region where one of the test beds operates.
The overall mission of leveraging the advanced technology is to speed up the development program for the connected and autonomous vehicle market.
