PracTel, Date of Publication: Nov 14, 2016

This report addresses advances in the Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) that became possible with the development of a connected car (CC) concept.

CC programs are now under development all around the world. Though there are many technological choices to support CC communications, two directions are leading at the present time. They are:

  • 5.9 GHz DSRC, and
  • LTE-A.

The report concentrates on those leaders; and analyzes their characteristics, parameters, marketing statistics, industries and the spectrum of applications. It also compares these technologies as they apply to CC communications.

5.9 GHz DSRC technology is being tested and trialed in the U.S. for the last 10-15 years; and rich collection of communications channel statistics was gathered. This technology is now becoming standardized by the U.S. DOT (2017) for CC communications. It has many attractions, such as economy of scale based on the IEEE 802.11 standard, network simplicity and other. It also standardized and accepted in Europe.

LTE-A and its modifications attract by longer reaches, higher speed, possibility of 1 ms latency, and utilization of cellular networks in which CC communications will be only one of many use cases. The standard is not ready yet to fully apply to CC connectivity; and the 3GPP is introducing it gradually with a promise to finalize in 1-2 years.

The report shows that CC is playing a significant role in reduction road fatalities, injuries and traffic delays.

The report is intended for a wide audience of technical and managerial staff involved in the ITS development; and particular concerns with marketing and technological aspects of a connected car; and for specialists in communications technologies that support advances in connected cars programs. For them, it will provide the following up-to-date information and results of the analysis:

  • ITS architecture, major goals, structure and market analysis
  • CC concept, applications, properties, specifics and market analysis
  • CC 5.9 GHz DSRC technology, standardization, protocols, industry and market analysis
  • CC LTE-A technology, standardization process, specifics and current status
  • Comparison 5.9 GHz DSRC and LTE-A technologies as they apply for CC communications.
