Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) is a new, promising scenario in the Networked Society. Will LTE evolution and 5G be able to tackle the technical challenges of ITS? Stefano Sorrentino, Master Researcher at Ericsson, gives us some insights in this Tech Talk video.

“In the Networked Society, things and people are connected,” he says. “It feels natural that cars and vehicles in general fit into this picture, as there are many interesting applications that can be enabled by connecting them.”

He notes that already today, several new vehicles mount LTE chipsets that allow all the typical mobile broadband applications. However, in this Tech Talk, Sorrentino focuses on 5G radio enhancements that will enable future services specific to ITS.

Watch the video to learn more about how we’re on the road to smarter and safer transportation systems with the help of 5G technology.
