Continental, Vodafone test 5G, AI, Netrounds for connected cars
The 5G-ready road users protection project, by Vodafone and Continental, has been successfully tested with state-of-the-art technologies such as mobile edge computing and Netrounds real-time testing active monitoring in order to decrease traffic fatalities in the future.

Vodafone and Continental have showcased first results of their innovation partnership and demonstrated how new technologies, including Netrounds for real-time testing and active monitoring, can assist in preventing thousands of road accidents every year.

The Vodafone and Continental project uses Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC) to enable a new type of automotive application for road safety features in connected cars powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI). The application works when connected cars stream pre-processed sensor data over the mobile network to MEC cloud nodes for real-time analytics and instant decision-making processes. The application on edge cloud nodes applies AI algorithms to determine if an action is required. The end-to-end system is latency sensitive and relies on insight into network conditions as provided by Netrounds.

Vodafone identified Netrounds as the preferred vendor for this project to solve the following needs:

  • Programmable and scalable software that can grow and adapt with evolving services and network needs.
  • Comprehensive reporting for service activation tests every time a network service is configured or updated.
  • Quality assurance of the data plane in real-time, using continuous active monitoring of key performance indicators of the network-to-network interface.
  • Automated and comprehensive remote troubleshooting.
