Researchers from the Universitat Politècnica de València (Polytechnic university of Valencia, UPV) have devised and configured a brand new 5G radio access device for intervehicular verbal exchange. The device is intended to enhance avenue safety in a future scenario wherein 5G technology are the norm.
A continuation of the METIS task, METIS-II is an worldwide task funded by the ecu fee under Horizon2020 to research the green integration and use of diverse 5G technologies and additives. among its stop goals is to optimise the performance and interconnection of in-vehicle cellular communications structures and, by using doing so, contribute to stepped forward street safety and lower site visitors twist of fate fees (though this is simply one in every of many viable 5G packages).
a few results of the task have been supplied at the fee's stand at the cellular world Congress held in Barcelona final month.
José F. Montserrat, assignment researcher on the UPV's Institute of Telecommunications and Multimedia applications (iTEAM), tells us: "the main novelty [of the new system] is that is allows the continual adjustment of waveforms in the sort of way that automobiles can communicate with every different, thereby overcoming the hurdle of now not having a hard and fast station for conversation".
In terms of hardware, the system presented in Barcelona consists of three programmable cards, every of which has a high-overall performance FPGA (field-programmable gate array) to integrate distinct waveforms, which might be what carry records through the air, and four antennas. these playing cards will allow direct communication among vehicles, in addition to the mixing of intervehicular communications into traditional mobile verbal exchange structures.
