Cellular Vehicle-to-Everything

Cellular Vehicle-to-Everything (C-V2X) is a technology that allows direct and network communication between vehicles and other vehicles, infrastructure, and devices. It uses cellular communication technologies (such as LTE and 5G) to transmit data between vehicles and other devices, such as location, speed, direction, and road conditions. The latest technology is utilized by 5G V2X for Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) communication. This technology ensures a higher level of safety and efficiency on the road, with quicker and more reliable communication. These advancements enable new features, such as cooperative perception and manoeuvring, which contribute to overall enhancing road safety.

Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V)

Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V)

V2V Services enhance traffic safety by enabling vehicles to communicate and exchange driving behaviour data. Vehicles share information on speed, position, and direction to improve decision-making and overall traffic safety. Some of the use cases are as follows:

  • Forward Collision Warning (FCW): Alerting drivers to avoid collisions with audio/visual warnings for potential hazards in their path.
  • Control Loss Warning (CLW): Alerting drivers to avoid potential collisions caused by another vehicle’s control loss.
  • Wrong Way Driving Warning (WWDW): Alerting drivers of wrong-way driving helps them avoid potential collisions with oncoming traffic.
  • Emergency Vehicle Warning (EVW): Alerting drivers about the approach of an emergency vehicle and instructing drivers ahead to yield.

Vehicle-to-Pedestrian (V2P)

V2P services enable vehicles to communicate with nearby vulnerable road users (VRUs) like pedestrians, road users, and cyclists, ensuring safety and convenience even in low-visibility and non-line-of-sight situations. Some of the use cases are as follows:

  • VRU Safety: Enhancing safety by alerting drivers and VRUs of potential hazards through V2P communication, helping anticipate and mitigate risks.
  • VRU Convenience: Enhancing VRU’s travel convenience by providing real-time traffic updates, collision information, and re-routing assistance.

Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I)

Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I)

V2I services enable vehicles to communicate with highway and urban road components like RFID readers, lane markers, traffic lights, cameras, streetlights, and signage for safety, mobility, or hazardous driving conditions. Some of the use cases are as follows:

  • Queue Warning: Enhance safety and traffic flow. Alert drivers about queues via RSU. Reduce dangers and lane disruptions for smoother traffic.
  • Curve Speed Warning: Alerting drivers to manage speed when approaching or leaving curves, reducing crash and collision risks.
  • Road Work Alert: Real-time alerts for road work, enhancing safety and enabling drivers to navigate and avoid hazards.
  • Distance-based Tolling Notification: Real-time notifications for distance-based toll charges enable convenient and efficient road payment for drivers.

Communication Technology

The National Frequency Allocation Plan 2022 by the Department of Telecommunications (DoT), GoI, allows C-V2X deployment in the 5.9 GHz spectrum band, enabling fast and low-latency communication. It employs two complementary transmission modes:

  • Network Communication, also known as “Uu,” enables communication with the network (V2N or I2N) for distances over 1 kilometre, known as Up/Downlink communication. It utilizes the conventional mobile network to inform vehicles about road conditions and local traffic.
  • Direction Communication, also known as “Pc5,” enables the communication between vehicles (V2V) for shorter distances, under 1 kilometre, known as Sidelink communication. It allows direct communication between vehicles, infrastructure, and other road users, independent of cellular networks.
