Connected Driving: Surviving the Latest Technology Disruption

How Tier 1 vendors can thrive throughout disruption by becoming value-adding service providers for OEMs

The gap between consumers demand for safety and OEMs connectivity offers is jeopardizing OEM market participants. OEMs are no longer the leading disruptors of the automotive industry. The rules of the game are changing. Technology companies like Google and Apple are leading the charge towards the future of transportation.

To combat this paradigm shift in the market, Tier 1 vendors can level the playing field for OEMs. Complex integration of multipurpose platforms overcome the hurdles OEMs face. Tier 1 vendors who can deliver connected car solutions for over-the-air (OTA) updates, predictive maintenance, and V2X connectivity features, help OEMs keep their competitive position.

This report investigates the common challenges Tier 1 vendors may face by becoming complex integrators, but more importantly, how to solve them.

A Visionary Roadmap for Advanced Driving Use Cases, Connectivity Technologies, and Radio Spectrum Needs

With this white paper, the 5G Automotive Association (5GAA) presents the results of its studies relating to the evolution of automotive connectivity for the purposes of enhanced road safety, improved traffic efficiency, greener environmental impact, and more comfortable driving.

5GAA has identified the most promising advanced driving use cases such as Cooperative Manoeuvres and Sensor Sharing, in conjunction with the adoption of Cellular Vehicle-To-Everything (C-V2X) standards as well as availability of required technologies and devices, i.e. on-board units (OBUs), road-side units (RSUs), and smartphones, integrating the latest chipsets and modules. The market trajectory of the identified use cases is described along with the expected timeline for their mass market deployment.

The white paper finally highlights the spectrum needs for basic and advanced driving use cases. For direct communication, this corresponds to between 10 and 20 MHz at 5.9 GHz for basic safety, and an additional 40 MHz or more at 5.9 GHz for advanced driving.
