Keynote Speech Title: Cooperative Perception Realized by Millimeter-Wave V2V2X for Automated Driving
Speaker: Kei Sakaguchi
Automated driving is considered as one of three largest applications in 5G cellular networks. There are two types of automated (or autonomous) driving. One is egoistic type using only self mounted sensors, and the other is cooperative type using extended sensors mounted on RSUs (Road Side Units) and other vehicles. It is obvious that the cooperative type (cooperative perception) is effective in complex urban environments to solve problems of blocking due to surrounding vehicles and buildings. In this paper, an extended system architecture for 5G cellular networks is introduced to realize such cooperative perception. The important elements in the extended system architecture are millimeter-wave (mmWave) V2V2X (Vehicle-to-Vehicle-to-Everything Relay) and MEC (Mobile (Multi-access) Edge Computing). The mmWave V2V2X is used to realize ultra high data rate communication among vehicles and RSUs to exchange sensing data of e.g. LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging), and the MEC is used for fusion of dynamic maps measured by extended sensors. In this paper, safeness of automated driving is evaluated by considering a scenario of overtaking vehicle by changing vehicular velocity and data rate of sensing data (LiDAR)
