5G Will Reduce Car Accidents

Over one million road deaths are reported in the world every year. Now these road fatalities are a global public safety imperative. According to Thatcham Research, 15,000 people are killed or injured on UK roads every year. Connected car systems with 5G will enable data sharing to improve the effectiveness of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). 

Thatcham Research is marking the 20th anniversary by urging consumers to further boost Britain’s road safety record by making a commitment to buy only models with a five-star Euro NCAP rating and a collision avoidance technology like AEB and Lane Assist systems. They also called on manufacturers to make AEB (Autonomous Emergency Braking) standard fitment, to prevent thousands of accidents.

Examples include warnings of collisions, emergency braking and even abnormal vehicle warnings if the car or another vehicle is operating outside normal parameters.

Every day, drivers take significant risks when getting behind the wheel and even with the rise of 5G, it seems the stakes are getting higher. 

Now, to reduce the number of car accidents, carmakers, automotive suppliers, governments, academics, and even non-automotive technology providers are jointly developing Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and ultimately autonomous driving systems.

With 5G, a new range of data transmission types will open up. In addition to receiving map data, drivers will be able to send full video feeds from the vehicle featuring full sensor data. Therefore, in the event of a crash, this data will be used to help emergency responders get a visual image of what’s going on, helping them escalate events based on priority.

ADAS are systems developed to automate, adapt and enhance vehicle systems for safety and better driving. The automated system which is provided by ADAS to the vehicle is proven to reduce road fatalities, by minimising the human error.
A new car safety use case, called Vehicle-to-Pedestrian, forewarns automobile drivers and pedestrians to potential safety conflicts through the use of Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) technology. ADAS are electronic systems that help the vehicle driver while driving or during parking. When designed with a safe human-machine interface, they are intended to increase car safety and more generally road safety.

The Vehicle-to-Pedestrian technology developed by Harman, a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics, can be enhanced through 5G-fueled C-V2X networks, which in the coming years will enable all-new in-car experiences. 

In the car, the system can also work on low latency 5G peer-to-peer signals to identify objects in the vehicle’s path through proximity scanning. Similarly, pedestrians or cyclists with a C-V2X-enabled mobile device will also receive an alert that a vehicle is entering their path

As a result, vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists can be alerted to potential safety conflicts even in situations where advanced cameras can’t see obstructions, such as around corners, or through parked vehicles.

 HARMAN’s technology is only one of many safety enhancements enabled by V2X technology, which enables situational awareness between vehicles. Now, with the maturation of 5G technologies and networks, C-V2X creates new opportunities for vehicles to communicate with even more of their surroundings, including other vehicles, road infrastructure and control systems, as well as low visibility road users like pedestrians and cyclists.

5G can help drive negative events towards positive outcomes. Aside from faster connectivity speeds, 5G is set to make safe driving a reality for everyone.
