Fraunhofer Institute for Open Communication Systems (FOKUS) is integrating the first commercial LTE-V2X products from Huawei, which provides network technology in roadside base stations and cars, into its digital urban traffic test field in Berlin, Germany. Now drivers can be warned faster than ever about situations ahead of them, such as accidents.

The following use cases, among others, will be developed in the test field on the basis of the now commercially available LTE-V2X transmission technology:

  • Hazard warning, e.g. in front of a construction site or a broken-down vehicle
  • Electronic brake indication (emergency brake)
  • Speed recommendation from traffic light system
