Moderator:   Chih-Lin I, Chief Scientist at CMCC, and Javier Gozalvez, Universidad Miguel Hernandez de Elche
 
Panelists:James Kimery, Marketing Director for RF Communications and SDR, National Instruments
 Nigel Jefferies, Chair, WWRF
 Xiaojing Wang, Director, Research Institute of Ministry of Transportation, China

Summary—Connected vehicles will utilize V2X communications to improve traffic safety and management. V2X communications will also facilitate the development of cooperative driving and sensing applications, and will hence have a significant impact on the development of automated vehicles. First generation of fully connected vehicles will initially rely on the IEEE802.11p/DSRC standard for V2V communications, and on cellular networks and IEEE802.11p/DSRC for V2I communications. However, the cellular industry has started the evolution of 4G LTE standards to integrate V2X communications. The solutions under development could provide complementary features to those of 802.11p, and enhance the reliability and dependability of V2X communications. Ensuring reliable, dependable, and low-latency V2X communications is also critical for automated vehicles, and is one of the key objectives sought for by future 5G standards. Connected and automated vehicles will hence be able to utilize in the future a variety of wireless technologies with distinct features and challenges. This panel will discuss the potential and role that such wireless technologies will play in the successful development and deployment of connected and automated vehicles, and the opportunities that heterogeneous V2X communications could offer to the automotive industry.

Vehicle to Vehicle (V2V) Communications

Moderator:   Wanshi Chen (Qualcomm)
 
Panelists:James Kimery (National Instruments)
 Yue Wang (Samsung UK)
 Qianxi Lu (Ericsson)
 Guan Hao (Nokia)

Summary—Recently there has been an increasing expectation that future vehicles will safely, efficiently and comfortably deliver personal mobility, and this will at the same time provide significant -- perhaps even revolutionary -- societal and economic benefits. Such expectations demand new levels of connectivity and intelligence, up to and including autonomous operation. V2X technologies can deliver on the connectivity part of this future vehicle proposition. While a primary focus of V2X is collision avoidance, other use cases that address the gamut of transportation needs have been developed by the transportation community. Nowadays, these use cases are motivated by evolution in technologies. The Wireless Access for Vehicular Environments standards based on IEEE 802.11 have established a good basis for V2X. Cellular V2X (LTE-based and 5G-based) technologies are expected to provide increasingly capable V2X connectivity for the vehicle of the future. Moreover, a key requirement for the success of V2X is a unified and dedicated spectrum that is globally, at least regionally, harmonized. This panel will focus on the challenges and enabling technologies for V2V in light of the ever-growing use cases, their communications requirements and the solutions that are becoming available to make the future vehicle a reality.
