With 3GPP Release 16 being finalized soon, let’s have a look at some of the highlights it will bring to C-V2X. When C-V2X was introduced in 3GPP Release 14, it was focused on enabling basic safety use cases . Release 16 builds on Release 14/15 by introducing a NR-based sidelink that will enable new advanced use cases while also paving the path for autonomous driving. The combination of Release 14/15 C-V2X and the NR-based sidelink in Release 16 will provide a comprehensive 5G C-V2X solution covering both basic safety and advanced applications.

In this webinar, we will showcase some of the benefits provided by the NR-based sidelink using an over-the-air prototype:
• Distance-based reliability
• Rich sensor sharing

We shall also discuss several other enhancements of NR C-V2X sidelink listed below and how some of these features provide overall capacity gains for NR C-V2X applications.
• ‘On-the-fly’ connectionless groups
• HARQ feedback for reliable multicast and unicast
• Efficient per packet scheduling to support arbitrary packet traffic patterns
• OFDM with scalable numerology for efficient link level performance
• Speed dependent reference signals for efficient performance at high speeds
• Spatial multiplexing for high throughput unicast
• Two stage control to enable forward compatibility at the physical layer with Release 17+
