From science fiction to reality
Self-driving cars – just a few years ago, that was still solely in the realm of science fiction films. In the meantime, the first semi-automated vehicles are already on our roads. And fully autonomous driving
All this requires fast, secure and reliable communication networks. The vehicle requires constant data updates for navigation, such as detailed street maps. It also needs updates in the event of unexpected traffic situations, such as traffic jams, rain or black ice. Today’s LTE network is already well equipped for that, but the new 5G mobile standard offers even more possibilities. We plan to equip all major traffic routes such as highways, main roads and railways with the 5G network by 2025. An initial test track for autonomous driving has been set up in Berlin, and we are involved in the project.
is not far off. What does that have to do with sustainable mobility? Autonomous vehicles could help make traffic safer and driving more relaxed. It would make it easier for people with physical limitations to be mobile. And the more efficient driving would protect the environment.
