Autonomous Vehicles

The Fourth Industrial Revolution


Date & Time

Monday, 27 Feb 2017

Hall 4 Auditorium 2


Managing the transition from manually driven cars to autonomous, and preparing the infrastructure to facilitate this technology will be a lengthy challenge from a technological and societal stand point. Additionally, laws and regulations will need to be adapted, a process which has already begun in many areas, including the United States, where regulation in California has been passed to allow for further testing on public roads. The mobile network is at the heart of the autonomous vehicle. Low latency, always-on and fail-proof are just some of the key requirements for cars. Will 5G be enough to handle this demand?
