Huawei Canada Demonstrates Connected Car Technology in Toronto
At the event, Huawei Canada, together with 5GAA member partners, participated in three 5G-enabled proof-of-concept demonstrations. Each live demonstration highlighted the practical applications of ultra-fast, ultra-low-latency 5G technology:
- Remote vehicle piloting: Vehicle-to-Network (V2N) Tele-Operated Driving (ToD) technologies demonstrated the remote-control operation of a vehicle over a cellular network.
- High definition mapping: An HD 3D Map was downloaded over a cellular network showcasing the real-time navigation requirements of connected and autonomous cars.
- Cutting-edge safety features: In-vehicle cameras illustrated how real-time detection over a cellular network allows for the monitoring and protection of Vulnerable Road Users (VRUs), such as pedestrians or cyclists.
As a founding member of 5G Automotive Association (5GAA), a global, cross-industry organization of companies from the automotive, technology, and telecommunications industries (ICT), Huawei has been defining C-V2X (Cellular Vehicle to Everything) standards and participating in interoperability demo of cellular-data-enabled connected vehicle applications.
“The automotive industry stands to benefit enormously from better, faster networks,” emphasized Backhouse. “With 5G applications that will enable remote driving, ultra-fast download speeds and low-latency safety features, Canada can lead in the development of the global automotive connected-car ecosystem.”
