BRUSSELS -Saturday, September 16th 2017 [ AETOS Wire ] (BUSINESS WIRE)-- The GSMA today urged the European Commission to keep the European market unrestricted for cellular technologies for use in connected vehicles. The EU plans to roll out a Cooperative Intelligent Transport System (C-ITS) in 2019 and intends to make 802.11p, a short-range vehicular communication system, the standard for safety-related messages between vehicles, restricting the more advanced cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) solution which is slated to enter the market in 2019.

In its new position paper entitled “Safe and Smarter Driving: the Rollout of Cellular V2X Services in Europe” the GSMA has urged the Commission to adopt a technol ... Read more »
