TECHNICAL AND RESEARCH CHALLENGES

ITN-5VC aims to investigate how multi-band multi-antenna communications, including mmWave, could be integrated together with radar heads and other wireless sensors into the same telematics unit, so that transmission chains and radiation systems were reused using the same spectrum in an opportunistic manner. This idea has important implications in the design of the vehicle and its communications that will also be addressed in the project.

With this premise, the project aims to investigate the future C-V2X systems based on 5G NR and how to integrate them with autonomous driving sensor systems.

OBJECTIVES

  • Design an optimum multi-antenna deployment for enhanced performance of the new hyper connected car concept.

  • Integrate Cellular-assisted Vehicular to Anything (C-V2X) protocols, basically NR Release 16 on (Releases 17 and 18 according to 3GPP current time plan), with autonomous driving sensor systems.

  • Adapt signalling (RRC) and MAC protocols on IoT specific 5G NR chipsets.

  • Explore new hardware solutions for radar and SoC integration and configure the new design of the car electronics.

IMPACT

ITN-5VC provides 396 person-months of high quality interdisciplinary and cross-sector research training for a new generation of scientists, who will benefit directly from the entrepreneurial and creative environment created by the network and deliver impact at a European level. It will produce a critical mass of highly-skilled professionals, who are advantaged by their international and inter-sector mobility.
