Vodafone and Continental develop safety apps using 5G, Cellular V2X technology

Monday 11 June 2018 | 18:22 CET | News
Vodafone and Continental are teaming up to increase security and reduce accidents on German roads with networked cars in Vodafone's 5G Mobility Lab with technologies including 5G, Cellular Vehicle-to-Everything (Cellular V2X) and mobile edge computing. The two companies are developing a digital protective screen for pedestrians and cyclists in the 5G lab in which cameras installed in networked cars recognize and transmit images of pedestrians via mobile frequencies to mobile edge computing stations that in turn alert drivers of any potential dangers via Cellular V2X.
