Smart mobility to improve traffic efficiency
Together with the Hong Kong applied science and technology research institute and telecommunications provider HKT, Scania has joined a trial to use 5G vehicle communications system on a 14 km public road in the city. It is one of the longest testing routes in the world.
The road tests have already started and are planned to last for nine months. Smart sensors will empower vehicles to communicate with other vehicles, pedestrians, cyclists, parking spaces, infrastructures and buildings to enable effective, faster and more accurate exchange of data.
The aim is to significantly improve road safety and traffic efficiency and explore the possibilities vehicles have to communicate with their surroundings. (ben)
