The connected car has turned into a definitive IoT driver through vehicle-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-framework (V2X) correspondences. Connected cars interface with various vehicles gaining ground toward exchanging data, preparing drivers for potential crashes and bottlenecks.

Connected car utilize gigantic proportions of data. It is said that in just an hour, connected cars in a network exchange double digit GBs of data with the cloud, equaling around twelve HD films. In times when connected cars are roping in the future, an imperative concern is advanced security. There are around 200 electric control units and millions of lines of code in present cars that are sourced from various suppliers. This implies that no individual or affiliation has control of the vehicle’s source code. Regardless, threats can as often be found and settled by cloud security benefits before they can infiltrate the vehicle while reassuring persistent updates and knowledge.

From route alteration based on upcoming traffic, downloads of large, detailed maps when entering new areas and essential software updates for driver-less AI, internet connectivity will become not just a nicety, but an essential component for all vehicles in the future.

Driver-less and associated vehicles without a doubt will spark changes that will shake the establishments of innovation in automobiles.  New vehicles will require a predictable web association with ultra-low latencies given by 5G Ultra Low Latency High Reliability, which relies upon ultra-dependable associations (close to 100%) and gives super rapid information sharing (in milliseconds).

Samsung Electronics’ patent application WO2017171523 titled “Method and apparatus for co-existence of device-to-device communications and cellular communications in mobile communications system” describes a technique and mechanical assembly for conjunction of gadget to-gadget correspondences and cell interchanges in a portable interchange and 5G framework. It leverages MIMO to increase path transfer distance loss mitigation and radio wave propagation.

Another patent application related to this technology from AT&T Mobility II LLC US20180137693A1 titled “Facilitation of smart communications hub to support driver-less vehicles in 5G networks or other next generation networks” describes a smart communications hub that enables the management of driver-less and/or autonomous vehicles. Current wireless data is separated from driver-less vehicle sensor data for quicker resolutions associated with connected cars. This patent also describes a method that facilitates a smart communications hub for driver-less vehicles within 5G networks and future next generation networks.

Fig 2. of US20180137693A1 illustrates an example schematic system block diagram of a communication hub associated with a vehicle according to one or more embodiments.

As 5G is being tested and deployed in countries increasingly, and with countries becoming more aware of the safety aspects ushered in by connected cars, 5G is bound to boost this new age commuting.
