Connected vehicle services, such as intelligent driving, are expected to demand mobility-based machine-to-machine connectivity. Given that connected vehicle services need to be delivered as the vehicle is moving, many organizations face the challenge of designing and operating mobile networks, communication networks and computing ecosystems that can efficiently deliver and process unprecedented and ever-increasing volumes of data from a rapidly moving vehicle. The AECC white paper offers initial requirements and architecture on how communication networks and computing resources could be orchestrated to enable secure, cost-effective connected vehicle services data delivery and processing on a global scale.
“By offering recommendations to vehicle OEMs, MNOs and the service provider ecosystem, the AECC white paper provides ways to optimize service offerings to meet the growing needs of connected vehicle use cases. This white paper helps identify the ways distributed computing can impact how connected vehicles deliver anticipated benefits to vehicle owners and users, vehicle OEMs and the ecosystem of service providers,” said Ken-ichi Murata, president and chairperson of the AECC, and fellow of Connected Company at Toyota. “We would like to thank the AECC Technical Solutions Working Group members for all their hard work.”
By sharing relevant findings, requirements and technology solutions with standards organizations and the public, the AECC aims to encourage the development of connected vehicle best practices and new use cases to accelerate the growth of the entire automotive edge computing industry. Specifically, the AECC whitepaper profiles the solutions developed by the following organizations:
- 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP)
- 5G Automotive Association (5GAA)
- Network Function Virtualization (NFV) by European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) Industry Specification Group (ISG) NFV
- Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC) by ETSI ISG
- Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) Locator/ID Separation Protocol (LISP)
- Linux Foundation (LF) Edge
- Intel ® Smart Edge Open (formerly OpenNESS)
