WP3: 5G V2X radio interface

WP3 Objectives

  • Develop an efficient and scalable 5G V2X air interface to enable ultra-reliable low latency communications (URLLC) between road infrastructure, vehicles and other road users. The radio interface covers both infrastructure-based and sidelink communications leveraging 3GPP solutions; Evaluate the individual enabling technologies with theoretical analysis, link and system-level simulations.
  • 5G radio-assisted positioning techniques.
  • Design Channel models for V2X communications.


Radio interface for V2X communications in various format:


Note: V2I: vehicle to infrastructure; V2N: vehicle to network; V2V: vehicle to vehicle; V2P: Vehicle to pedestrian; P2N: pedestrian to network; N2I: network to infrastructure;

Task 3.3: Positioning and channel modelling (Nokia)


Key deliverables

D3.1: Intermediate 5G V2X Radio (31.5.2018)

To meet the 5G V2X requirements, including the requirements on E2E latencies (below 5 ms), ultra-high reliability (99.999%), high density of connected vehicles and positioning accuracy (down to 5 cm), the 5GCAR radio interface design involves a rich set of technology components: 10 infrastructure-based (Task 3.1) and 9 sidelink-based technology components (T3.2). In addition, 5 technology components from Task 3.3 [link to D3.1 (pdf)]

D3.2: Report on Channel Modelling and Positioning for 5G V2X (30.11.2018)

Based on the gap analysis, D3.2 describes 5GCAR contributions:

  1. V2V measurements and characterization of channels above 6 GHz
  2. Multi-link shadowing model based on measurements below 6 GHz
  3. Channel measurements for massive MIMO adaptive beamforming.

In terms of positioning, going beyond state of art, D3.2 includes 6 technology components that are essential for building positioning solutions needed to enable 5G V2X use cases.

Next steps

  • Concept development, performance evaluation and integration;
  • D3.3. Final V2X radio interface deliverable.
