Continental develops 5G hybrid platform for connected vehicles
New Delhi: Technology company Continental on Friday announced that the company is developing a flexible 5G hybrid platform to make the future safety assistance more secure and efficient in connected cars.
Company’s new 5G-Hybrid-V2X solution allows both mobile network communication, and rapid and reliable direct exchange of data, Continental said in a release.
This solution integrates technologies not only for 4G and 5G network access, but also Dedicated Short Range Communication (DSRC) and Cellular-V2X for direct V2X communication. This enables vehicle manufacturers to overcome a big challenge when deploying V2X on a global scale.
Continental has also bagged first series project where they can implement 5G-Hybrid-V2X solution.
“Winning a first project based on our 5G-Hybrid-V2X platform is not only great news for us but for the entire industry. Bringing 5G on the development roadmap so early demonstrates that the automotive industry has its finger on the pulse of digitalization,” said Johann Hiebl, head of the business units Body & Security and Infotainment & Connectivity at Continental.
“Additionally, deploying V2X on such a large, global scale marks an important stepping stone for safer and more intelligent mobility.”
