Collaborative driving is key to increase safety on the roads and reduce fatalities in traffic. 5G, with available, reliable and secure capabilities, will further safeguard cellular relevance to support automotive needs.
One of my main reflections when talking to partners and colleagues in the automotive industry is the immediate need to deploy global Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) features to increase safety. We need to share and collaborate to save lives now. This means that the deployment models and execution for ADAS system features are currently being defined. Defined in vehicle devices but also in the network communication, edge and the cloud layers of “the stack”. Network Near services such as predictive availability, interworking, quality of service and security are enabled when using Ericsson Connected Vehicle Cloud (CVC). This enables trust in connectivity and then 5G. Trusted connectivity is used as an extra sensor to increase safety with driver assistance features.
In Las Vegas, we also described the partnership with Microsoft to combine Ericsson's connected car platform, Connected Vehicle Cloud, on top of the Microsoft Connected Vehicle Platform running on the Microsoft Azure cloud platform. The integrated solution allows automakers to deploy and scale global vehicle services such as fleet management, over-the-air software updates and connected safety services much easier and faster while reducing costs. It provides flexibility through modular design and multiple deployment options.
