Telefónica, Dekra open connected driving test centre
Telecommunications provider Telefónica has inaugurated a test center for connected and autonomous driving together with German testing company Dekra in Málaga, Spain. On the premises, the companies are testing 5G solutions and Vehicle to Everything (V2X) technologies together with other cooperation partners. Also, the use of various 5G frequency bands for the international deployment of mobility solutions can be tested.

The 5G research and development site was equipped with network technology in cooperation with supplier Ericsson. It is open to both automotive companies and manufacturers of vehicle components, equipment and road infrastructure to further promote connected driving in Europe. In recent weeks, for example, the international 5G Automotive Association (5GAA) and the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) together with other providers have tested the interoperability of various C-V2X solutions and devices in a so-called C-V2X PlugTest.

Among other things, these developments are intended to increase traffic safety. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the U.S. federal agency for road and vehicle safety, the use of V2X technologies in road traffic can prevent up to 600,000 traffic accidents per year. The technology communicates in the vehicle via mobile radio with other vehicles, trucks, cyclists or pedestrians and with the road infrastructure such as traffic lights, traffic signs or barriers. If obstacles suddenly appear, the car not only warns the occupants, but also initiates its own measures in real time. At the same time, networked driving provides a better driving experience and more comfort through new information and entertainment systems. Modern V2X technologies can also make a contribution to the environment, since fuel consumption and driving behavior can be analyzed even more precisely.
