Traffic safety in the METIS-II 5G connected cars use case: Technology enablers and baseline evaluation
Ultra-reliable V2V communications with extreme transmission rate probably constitute the most ambitious use case of the fifth generation mobile. At present, both the scientific community and the standardization bodies are addressing the design of the technologies that will make it possible, although there is no unanimity in which technologies to incorporate. This paper approaches this topic from the work developed in the METIS-II project, describing the use case, the technology enablers and some details of the evaluation of these techniques in realistic scenarios. Results show that, for a baseline system, carrier bandwidths needed to fulfil the requirements are between 30 and 100 MHz, depending on the scenario. Nevertheless, results show potential to reduce the needed bandwidth to a range between 20 and 50 MHz by incorporating additional technology enablers to the studied baseline system.
