Talking Cars: Field Test Results Comparing DSRC & C-V2X Technology



Date: October 17, 2018
Time: 11 a.m. New York, 4 p.m. London 
Sponsor: 5GAA

According to World Health Organization figures, more than 1.2 million casualties occur globally as a result of traffic incidents. As vehicles add more sensors to improve safety and advance the readiness of automated driving, vehicle-to-everything communications (V2X) are expected to significantly enhance road safety. As a result, global governments and industry (automotive and telecom) are carefully evaluating two different V2X technologies: IEEE 802.11p-based radio DSRC/ITS-G5 and 3GPP-based C-V2X. 802.11p is an older radio technology, based on specifications dating to 1999, and has been researched over the past decade, whereas C-V2X is a newer radio technology benefiting from many advances in communications. This 5GAA-sponsored webinar will review how each of the technologies performed in an apples-to-apples comparison, executed by Ford and Qualcomm Technologies, Inc in US lab and field testing. This webinar will review:

  1. The reliability, communication range and latency of each V2X technology under the same test conditions
  2. Performance comparison in congested environments
  3. Resiliency of each technology to adverse deployment conditions, including interference
