How 5G Wideband Will Enhance Self-Driving Car Experience?

Auto Tech Outlook | Monday, June 03, 2019

FREMONT, CA – The emergence of self-driving cars is dominating the automotive engineering world. It is set to revolutionize the transportation sector, starting from family vehicles to logistics carriers. Along with the incorporation of digital technology, manufacturers are implementing innovative approaches to enhance safety, efficiency, comfort, and autonomy.

Apart from that, network bandwidth also plays a vital role in the effectiveness of self-driving cars. Autonomous cars produce up to 30 terabytes of data, almost equivalent to the average data usage of 3000 people. Consequently, the worldwide implementation of self-driving vehicles will potentially increase the global wireless traffic to peak levels nearly 40 times greater than the current condition.

Connected vehicles require robust networks capable of transmitting vast amounts of data at high speed. Latency in the system is unacceptable, as it could potentially result in a wrong turn, missed signals, or even a crash. A recent study by Counterpoint Internet of Things Tracker Service predicted more than 125 million connected cars with embedded connectivity to be shipped out between 2018 and 2022.

The connected cars in the market today depend on 4G LTE technology to stream media and connect with services. However, the introduction of 5G will revolutionize the connectivity in autonomous cars, enhancing vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communication. The 5G technology will augment the interaction between connected vehicles, enabling the efficient transfer of information with roadside sensors. It will also help the cars in gathering information about weather and traffic conditions.

5G powered connected vehicles will be able to collect real-time routing information to streamline the flow of traffic. It will lead to improved driver safety by alerting drivers of potential alerts. According to the National Highway Safety Administration, the introduction of collision prevention system could help in saving almost 1300 lives a year.

The vehicles enabled with 5G connectivity can potentially reduce emission by almost 90 percent by resolving the congestion issues in the urban areas by up to 40 percent. The data from connected vehicles can be utilized by the city management to plan and provide better facilities to the public. The high-speed connectivity will allow the systems to detect empty parking spaces, which will reduce the time spent riding around the block.
