Deutsche Telekom edge computing subsidiary MobiledgeX is partnering Savari to develop enhanced Cellular Vehicle to Everything (C-V2X) use cases for automotive OEMS, their fleet management, and mobility-as-a-service partners.

Savari is a Silicon Valley based auto tech company focused on V2X communications.

The presence of the MobiledgeX Edge-Cloud within operator and enterprise networks allows this partnership with Savari to enable deployment of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) solutions orchestrated dynamically with associated QoS.

Coupled with MobiledgeX’s other partnerships around monitoring and observability, Savari is able to provide ADAS applications faster and with greater security and governance across globally distributed public and private 4G LTE and 5G networks. 

According to MobiledgeX, automotive OEMs will be able to accelerate their connected, mobile, shared, autonomous and electrified strategic plans by leveraging Savari and MobiledgeX’s partnership and edge-enabled solutions. Connected vehicle solutions include V2X use cases for safety, mobility and allows electric vehicles to communicate with the grid, Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G).

The two companies say that they will be able to address the V2X and V2G market needs in the European Union in 2020. Savari platforms powered by the Qualcomm 9150 C-V2X chipset have recently achieved RED certification. The partnership between Savari and MobiledgeX will enable Savari’s emergency response, first responders, and public sector fleet manager customers to bring solutions to market faster. 

Savari says that the partnership will allow it to deploy aggregation logic on the edge and generate critical data for its deep learning models in the public cloud, and in turn, bring that intelligence back to its edge applications.

“Over the years, Savari has made significant advancements in V2X technology delivering value for our automotive OEM customers, the GSMA Association, and the 5GAA Automotive Association,” said Ravi Puvvala, chief executive officer of Savari. “MobiledgeX’s collaboration with GSMA, brings us one step closer to our core 5GAA mission of making roads safer and smarter in a cost-effective manner. We aim to do that by deploying edge and targeted AI applications for our customers that leverage conventional V2X data as well as data from other onboard perception systems.”

Eric Braun, chief commercial officer of MobiledgeX stated, “With Savari, we can now begin to address several of the fundamental edge orchestration challenges facing automotive OEMs as the industry introduces C-V2X and C-V2G solutions which accelerate the adoption of semi-autonomous and autonomous platooning transportation fleets.”
