MAGNA: Extended ADAS possibilities through participation in the 5G innovation program

Magna is expanding its development opportunities in the field of automated driving by participating in NorthStar, a 5G innovation program for industrial companies from Telia Sweden and Ericsson. As part of the agreement, Telia and Ericsson have built a dedicated, private 5G network on Magna’s test track in Vårgårda, Sweden. Here, new, state-of-the-art Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) solutions in the areas of Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) and Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) connectivity can be tested.

As part of NorthStar, Magna will have access to 5G millimeter wave (mmWave) technology, which enables low-latency gigabit speeds and seamless connectivity for new ADAS testing. In addition, the use of mmWave technology allows for the continued development of common sensing and communication systems.

Magna’s test track will be equipped with the 5G network, which offers gigabit-range data speeds and ultra-low latency. Utilizing the 26 GHz frequency band and 400 MHz bandwidth, the network is critical to Magna’s driving automation and driver assistance systems, which rely on real-time data from vehicle sensors. Fast network speeds and short response times are essential to warn drivers in time, avoid accidents and minimize their consequences. NorthStar’s 5G network is powered by Ericsson Dual-Mode 5G Core, which is connected to Telia’s existing public 5G network. Thanks to this interconnectivity, Magna can benefit from high-speed connectivity over large areas.

Magna’s ADAS technology supports driving safety by effectively reducing or eliminating the risk of serious accidents by controlling steering, braking and acceleration. By integrating the needs of the driver and the environment, Magna creates an exceptional driving experience. These innovative technologies pave the way for future autonomous driving and new mobility solutions.
