SummaryIntelligent Transportation Systems are one of the fundamental pilars in the framework of Smart Cities and Smart Regions, aiming to optimize multi-modal traffic management and reduce pollution as well as energy consumption. Specific communication systems are being developed in order to provide adequate use of information systems and multiple data sources, such as context information, vehicle diagnostics or specific events, among others. In this context, 5G networks play a key role, providing high capacity, low latency and large density networks. Among the multiple applications of 5G networks, vehicular communications in multiple formats (V2V, V2I, V2X, V2B) is of particular interest, as enablers for the required levels of interaction and interconnectivity.
In this presentation we will discuss the trends and requirements of 5G networks applied to ITS, within the framework of context awareness within Smart Cities and Smart Regions.
