This thesis is a research into possible use of 5G in vehicular communication with emphasis on autonomous vehicles. Recent developments in road vehicles show a strong trend toward higher degrees of self-driving capabilities. These capabilities have a potential to improve road safety through exclusion of human factor from road traﬀic. They can also create new advantages for businesses through, for instance, truck platooning. To facilitate such capabilities and cooperation between vehicles and other traﬀic participants, mobile and reliable communication standard is needed. In this thesis we analyse 5G in the context of V2X systems, how it compares to another alternatives, and whether it is able to match the latency requirements for safety-critical applications of self-driving scenarios.
