5G Makes AVs Data Centers on Wheels

MouserDriverless, autonomous transportation is a grand dream of this decade. What’s needed to make this dream a reality is a unique combination of technologies that overcomes the overarching challenges of autonomous driving.

A Quest for the Perfect Match

Autonomous vehicles (AVs) need to handle an unprecedented amount of information in real time. For example, to avoid collisions, detect obstacles and pedestrians, and notice a free parking spot, a high volume of metadata must be exchanged among the vehicles, the city infrastructure (e.g., traffic lights, public safety systems), fog/cloud service providers, and even automakers. According to Intel®, 3.9TB (terabytes) of data must be processed for one such vehicle per day. That’s the equivalent of the daily data usage of 2,666 internet users. Car components such as ultrasonics, radar, global positioning system, cameras, and infotainment systems all add up to this data surge.

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers and the US Department of Transportation are among the leading contributors to developing new standards for the secure and scalable exchange of data among vehicles (vehicle to vehicle [V2V]), vehicle to infrastructure (V2I), vehicle to network (V2N), vehicle to pedestrian (V2P)— collectively known as vehicle to everything (V2X).
