Embracing the Wider Connected Car Environment Key to Fulfilling the ITS Vision, Says ABI Research

Vice President and practice director Dominique Bonte comments: “It is essential the ITS debate shifts to encompass the wider framework of the connected car environment which offers a nearly continuous spectrum of connectivity options offering a variety of range, line of sight, and response time characteristics.” Synergies between three connectivity categories will need to be established:

  • Very short range – ADAS sensors – Radar / Sonar / Laser / Lidar / Video
  • Short range – V2V & V2I – DSRC 5.9 GHz– IEEE 802.11p
  • Wide area connections – Cellular / Wi-Fi / Satellite (Traditional Telematics)
