5G Autonomous Vehicles Business Models and Technical Considerations: Internet of Things Use Case Study
Autonomous vehicles are an exciting collection of transportation use cases that will benefit from the low latency and high speed of future 5G networks. "It will take the auto industry, its ecosystem, and communications SPs at least 5–10 years to develop and optimize the automated data analysis of real-time telemetric and video imaging data. Nevertheless, the changes coming to the industry will be transformational, and we expect the leading communications SPs in Asia/Pacific to take the lead in developing the necessary 5G coverage and mobile edge assets needed to support V2I and C-V2X. Ultimately, business models will change, and the industry will be looking at a plethora of managed service models," says Bill Rojas, adjunct research director, IDC Asia/Pacific.
