Increasing traffic volumes and the associated high pollution levels have a negative impact on the quality of life for the people living in cities. Modern, holistic traffic concepts are an important element in overcoming these problems. 5G can connect a large number of mobile terminals and sensors and thus enable the interconnection of traffic-relevant infrastructure throughout the city. This enables traffic lights, traffic cameras, public transport, parking sensors, vehicles and other traffic guidance devices to communicate with each other in near real-time to generate an optimized traffic flow.
With its planned positioning capabilities, 5G can also provide added value by making the position of transportation means available in real time. This will enable better assessment of real traffic volumes and more efficient traffic flow in the future.
