Increasing urbanization worldwide and the growing volume of traffic require flexible traffic and environmental concepts. 5G can contribute to this by interconnecting millions of sensors to collect environmental data. Besides, 5G-support autonomous vehicles and drones (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, UAV) in passenger and freight transport tasks through communication and positioning functions. Additionally, this enables new concepts of the Sharing Economy through the positioning of bicycles and cars.
Improved Traffic Flow
The growing volume of traffic in cities is increasingly causing slower traffic flow and traffic jams. By connecting road users and infrastructure via 5G in near real-time, an efficient and flexible traffic flow can be achieved.
