Testing network performance for intelligent traffic scenarios
In May and June ITRL has had activities at Kista Innovation Park, testing network requirement for safety-critical applications in automotive use-cases and safety-critical 5G features. The activities will continue in late August and later this fall.
Up until now we have done tests at Kista Innovation Park to evaluate network performance for intelligent traffic scenarios. Connected traffic infrastructure will be able to enhance awareness for connected vehicles and help them to make more safe and efficient decisions. However, with new connectivity we must have a reliable network. The technologies developed in 5G can potentially deliver on such requirements.
In our tests we have looked at the questions “ What are the network requirement for safety-critical applications in automotive use-cases?” and then “ What 5G features protect safety-critical network traffic?”.
In the initial work we’ve concluded now we have built a testing framework and collected some data on network performance in terms of latency. We have also established a few automotive baseline scenarios (what type of data, data sizes and data rate) as well as a few ”network configuration scenarios” (i.e. what features to enable/disable, which parameters to tune).
In the fall we will continue these tests with a higher focus on reliability (will 99.9% data arrive on time, etc.).
In addition we have also had the following student projects in KIP:
- Two MS thesis students developing a sidewalk mobility application with SVEA
- Two Digital Futures summer interns working on: developing a new 5G-ready version of the SVEA platform.
