Smart Mobility Consortium in Hong Kong held the city’s first demonstration of the use of cellular vehicle to everything (C-V2X) technology for connected cars. The demonstration was conducted as part of ITS Asia-Pacific Forum at Hong Kong Science Park.
For the demonstration, a vehicle was fitted with C-V2X technology and it used operator HKT’s C-V2X trial network, using the 2.6-GHz band for vehicle-to-infrastructure communications and 5.9-GHz for vehicle-to-vehicle communications.
Scenarios demonstrated included the transmission of vehicle-to-vehicle do not pass, vulnerable road user, blind spot or lane change warnings, alerts sent in cases where vehicles need to make emergency stops and intersection collision warnings.
It is known that the Smart Mobility Consortium was founded in March by HKT, Huawei, Qualcomm and the Hong Kong Applied Science and Technology Research Institute (ASTRI).
