With the advance of self-driving technology have come widespread myths about autonomous driving. Audi has responded to some of those…
The Commonwealth of Virginia recently hosted a live trial of a new driver and pedestrian safety concept that allows near-real-time notification of roadway hazards through 5G and edge technologies. This trial is one of three conducted internationally by a public-private collaboration, organized by the 5G Automotive Association (5GAA) and eight member companies representing leading technology companies from around the globe.
A related European live-trial was conducted in the city of Turin, Italy. The North American live trial was conducted on the Virginia Smart Road operated by the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute in Blacksburg, VA. It was the first of its kind in North America.
5G transmission speeds and edgee servers—locally installed, high-powered computers capable of running Artificial Intelligence programs—open the door to smart city technologies such as near real-time traffic management and other business applications. The connected car concept uses this high-speed and edge computing technology to communicate with car sensors and pedestrian smartphones, via a user-authorized mobile app—about traffic hazards such as accidents and road construction—for pedestrian and in-vehicle driver safety and efficient navigation.
