The key technology enablers for 5G vehicle-to-anything (V2X) communication are well studied and understood in the wireless industry, while standardization of 3GPP Rel. 16
V2X is in its final phase. Nevertheless, there is still some lack of insights into the required rollout conditions, roles of different stakeholders, investments, business models and expected profit from Connected and Automated Mobility (CAM) services. It is foreseen that these advanced CAM services, including high-definition (HD) maps support, highway chauffeur, teleoperated driving, highly and ultimately fully autonomous driving, will be enabled through next-generation 5G vehicular networks, starting with 3GPP Rel.16.
This second version of the white paper from the 5G PPP Automotive Working Group builds on the first one, which was published in early 2018. With respect to the first version, this paper includes further work and enhancements that targets the description of the 5G V2X ecosystem and stakeholder relationships, different sharing models for network infrastructure, as well as a business setup and finally a techno-economic assessment of the investment.
The scope of the paper is to provide insights and trigger discussions on business models for CAM services, 5G V2X deployment costs and potential revenues. Available research studies, ongoing discussion within the 5G PPP, standardization bodies and other alliances are used as references to build the arguments in this paper.
