Initial 3GPP Cellular V2X standard completed

The initial Cellular V2X standard was completed last week. It focuses on Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) communications, with further enhancements to support additional V2X operational scenarios to follow, in Release 14, targeting completion during March 2017.

3gpp_tm_rdAs part of the expansion of the LTE platform to new services, and to keep track with the increasing needs of the automotive industry, 3GPP is developing functionality to provide enhancements specifically for vehicular communications – both in terms of direct communication (between vehicles, vehicle to pedestrian and vehicle to infrastructure) and for cellular communications with networks.

The initial Cellular Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) standard, for inclusion in the Release 14, was completed last week – during the 3GPP RAN meeting in New Orleans. It focuses on Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) communications, with further enhancements to support additional V2X operational scenarios to follow, in Release 14, targeting completion during March 2017.

An overview of the completed features can be found in Initial Cellular V2X standard completed.

The 3GPP Work Item Description can be found in RP-161894.
