Denso and KDDI joint verification using 5G for autonomous driving, started at the former Haneda Airport site

On March 3, 2021, DENSO and KDDI started joint verification to utilize 5G (5th generation mobile communication system) for autonomous driving toward the realization of a mobility society free from traffic accidents and traffic congestion. We will jointly verify technologies that support autonomous driving with high-definition in-vehicle cameras and roadside sensors.
“Global R & D Tokyo, Haneda” is a base where DENSO is conducting research and development such as autonomous driving in HANEDA INNOVATION CITY, which is under construction on the site of the former Haneda Airport terminal . The test road at the site will be developed in KDDI’s 5G communication environment.
Through demonstrations, DENSO’s in-vehicle communication technology development know-how and KDDI’s network technology knowledge will be combined to promote the use of 5G in the field of autonomous driving.
By utilizing the high-speed, large-capacity communication that is a feature of 5G, it will be possible to handle high-definition images from high-definition in-vehicle cameras and information from roadside sensors that detect road information such as oncoming vehicles and pedestrians. This makes it possible to grasp the vehicle and surrounding conditions more efficiently than before.
AWS Wavelength installed in the equipment of KDDI, a telecommunications carrier, will be used as an edge computing resource for processing data. As a result, data can be processed with low delay. AWS Wavelength is an IaaS-type service that enables the provision of low-latency / ultra-low-latency applications / services using the network of mobile carriers ( Related article : “AWS Wavelength” is now available in Japan, KDDI 5G network to be capable of ultra-low latency services construction using )
As a system that utilizes data with low delay, we will verify the technology of a system that delivers ever-changing road conditions to autonomous vehicles in real time. Furthermore, we will verify the effectiveness of a system that remotely supports the driving of unmanned vehicles.
