Europe’s first live demonstration of Cellular Vehicle-to-Everything (C-V2X) interoperability between a motorcycle, vehicles and roadside infrastructure, based on 3GPP Release 14, has taken place in Ingolstadt, Germany.
The trial was performed by the Connected Vehicle to Everything of Tomorrow (ConVeX) consortium, which is made up of AUDI AG, Ducati, Ericsson, SWARCO, the Technical University of Kaiserslautern, and Qualcomm CDMA Technologies GmbH, a Qualcomm subsidiary.
The demonstration featured Audi Q7 and Audi A4 road vehicles, as well as a Ducati Multistrada 1200 Enduro two-wheel vehicle equipped with C-V2X technology using the Qualcomm® 9150 C-V2X chipset. It looked at how C-V2X technology can be used to improve road safety, including the use of intersection collision warning, where a vehicle equipped with C-V2X technology pulls out from a junction with an adjoining road and avoids hitting a motorcycle rider who has the right of way, as well as across traffic turn collision risk warnings, in which a vehicle avoids a left turn collision with a motorcycle.
These use cases are part of a wider set of advanced applications that have been demonstrated through the ConVeX project, which also involves vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communication using roadside infrastructure units developed by SWARCO and vehicle-to-network (V2N) communication using Ericsson’s 4G/5G cellular test network operated at the motorway A9 German digital test field.
