Denso and KDDI have started researching 5G’s use in automated driving.

In the verification project, Denso and KDDI will build a 5G environment in a test course at Global R&D Tokyo, Haneda, a research and development centre for automated driving operated by Denso.

The two companies will verify driver assistance technologies in automated driving vehicles using high-definition in-vehicle cameras and roadside sensors.

Denso and KDDI will verify systems for monitoring the vehicle and the situation around it by using high-definition images from in-vehicle cameras and roadside sensors based on 5G high-speed, large-capacity communication.

The companies will leverage low latency connections, which are achieved through edge computing technology for 5G, including AWS Wavelength, to build a system for distributing the road situation to automated driving vehicles in real time and to verify the remote driver assistance technology.

Denso and KDDI plan to conduct verification using end-to-end (E2E) network slicing. This technology provides communication environment preferences, depending on the application and requirements, by virtually partitioning a network. The technology is expected to be used in fields such as automated driving, where various types of data must be communicated depending on the priority.
