Reliable tool for the simulation of V2X use cases in 5G networks
As the automotive market is shifting towards connected and automated vehicles, there is an increasing need for reliable connectivity. This is where cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X), the communication standard for automotive connectivity in 4G and 5G mobile networks, comes into play. C-V2X enables vehicles to connect with other vehicles, pedestrians, roadside equipment and the Internet.
With C-V2X becoming established as a key technology for future cellular networks, an even greater need arises to simulate and evaluate the capabilities of the developed 3GPP standards in realistic traffic scenarios and under various network conditions. For this purpose, we are developing C-V2XSim – a new and reliable simulation platform for C-V2X use cases in 5G networks.
The first module of the platform is a simulator based on vehicle-to-network (V2N) communication, e.g., for remote driving.
