Huawei and Vodafone present the new Cellular V2X technology to the MWC 2017

Huawei e VodafoneIn partnership with Audi, they showed, al Mobile World Congress 2017 di Barcelona, the first cellular technology in Europe that allows the connection between cars, people and road infrastructure. This will allow, therefore, to increase security and guarantee a better driving experience.

The new technology Cellular V2X (C-V2X) was shown live at the famous circuit of Catalunya to Barcelona. Being part of the evolutionary process of the 4G towards the network 5G, the new technology C-V2X it allows the exchange of information between vehicles and road infrastructures, with an evolution of driving models and improving security, traffic management el 'road efficiency.

Huawei and Vodafone: the new C-V2017X technology is shown on the MWC 2

This demonstration made by Huawei e Vodafone follows a successful trial between the two companies and Bosch on connections C-V2X a 5.9 GHz at the highway A9 in Germany last February. The Chinese company has shown driving some passengers aboard Audi vehicles equipped with technology Cellular V2X.

The latter have witnessed how interconnected vehicles can improve the driving experience under 4 aspects:

  • Visibility, interconnected vehicles receive a video signal from a vehicle that precedes in situations where greater visibility of traffic, confluent roads or other critical situations may be useful
  • Traffic light alert, the driver will be notified well in advance of the changes in the lights of the traffic light, thus being able to slow down as much as necessary
  • Pedestrian warningThanks to the mobile connectivity, it will be possible to warn vehicles of next pedestrian crossings, even before they are visible from the car's sensors and from the driver himself
  • Emergency braking, the technology also introduces an algorithm that determines whether there is a risk that other interconnected vehicles will suddenly brake or change lanes, triggering an alarm to alert the driver


As shown in this test, direct communication between vehicles with technology C-V2X allows you to study future improvements to be implemented in the automated guide.

Two professional figures from Vodafone and Huawei explain the technology in detail

Luke Ibbetson, Head of Research & Development and Technology Strategy di Vodafone Group, reported that the standard C-V2X it will be an essential component for i connected vehicles e autonomous. This is because it will make it possible to forecast and manage road risk situations more effectively.

The development of this technology is also an example of how Vodafone is transforming its networks 4G, fast and reliable, in those 5G. Edward Deng, President Wireless Network Product Line di Huawei, said that intelligent transport is destined to become one of the crucial application scenarios for future mobile communication systems.

Huawei e Vodafone I am happy to guide the development of the solution Cellular C-V2X to meet the needs of the future ITS systems and open the way for a more interconnected world.

In particular, Vodafone has installed a high performance mobile radio network for data transmission to cover the circuit while Huawei supplied the radio modules installed on the cars and the updating of the communication technology of the base stations.
