Vehicle to Everything (V2X), including Vehicle to Vehicle, Vehicle to Pedestrian, Vehicle to Infrastructure and Vehicle to Network, communication has drawn increasing attention as an enabling technology for Intelligent Transportation System (ITS). In the next 3GPP R16 release the standard will support advanced V2X use cases and requirements for advanced transportation applications like platooning, advanced driving, extended sensors and remote driving. The 3GPP R16 will standardize new V2X physical layer features that only 5G technology can support (NR-V2X).
To support ASTRI’s technology evolution, ASTRI plans to develop standard-compliant NR-V2X Base Station (BS) reference design for road side unit deployment, User Terminal (UE) reference design to be installed in vehicles, and link level simulation framework for the development and performance verification of the NR-V2X features.
The NR-V2X technologies to be developed from this project can be applied to enable ITS and contribute to smart city development of Hong Kong.
A number of companies have shown strong interests in collaborating with ASTRI and adopting our technologies to be developed from this project. Initially engaged customers include vehicle electronics manufacturer, i.e. ZhongShan Steelmate, network infrastructure manufacturers, i.e., Suzhou Spideradio and Hong Kong Great Chin.
