Nanyang Technological University, Singapore announced that it will be working with industry partners to integrate cellular communication into vehicle-to-everything (V2X) technologies, as part of NTU’s upcoming research in the smart mobility sector.

Starting next year, NTU will work with industry partners to study V2X, existing 4.5G and the upcoming 5G mobile networks, to improve the data transmission speed and radio coverage distance for communication between vehicles to infrastructure, how they can synergistically complement each other and be explored for use in autonomous vehicle prototypes, traffic infrastructure and unmanned aircraft systems. These vehicular communications will be used to relay real-time navigation traffic and hazard information to vehicles in advance.
