Abstract:This thesis consists of two projects focusing on how 5G can be used to make vehicles safer. The first project focuses on conceptualising near-future use cases of how Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) can be enhanced through 5G technology. Four concepts were developed in collaboration with various industry partners. These concepts were successfully demonstrated in a proof-of-concept at the 5G Automotive Association (5GAA) “The 5G Path of Vehicle-to-Everything Communication: From Local to Global” conference in Turin, Italy. This proof-of-concept was the world’s first demonstration of such a system. The second project focuses on a futuristic use case, namely remote operation of semi-autonomous vehicles (sAVs). As part of this work, it was explored if augmented reality (AR) can be used to warn remote operators of dangerous events. It was explored if such augmentations can be used to compensate during critical events. These events are defined as occurrences in which the network conditions are suboptimal, and information provided to the operator is limited. To evaluate this, a simulator environment was developed that uses eye- tracking technology to study the impact of such scenarios through user studies. The simulator establishes an extendable platform for future work. Through experiments, it was found that AR can be beneficial in spotting danger. However, it can also be used to directly affect the scanning patterns at which the operator views the scene and directly affect their visual scanning behaviour.
