LTE/4G Sidelink communications - Communications among vehicles

Hi you all,

I would like to know if it is possible to sense and recognize nearby vehicles through different AutoPi devices; for instance, using LTE Sidelink. My main goal is to create an intelligent transport system (ITS) in a distributed fashion, in which vehicles were able to communicate with each other using broadcast and periodic messages (with info, such as position, speed, etc.).

I would be grateful if someone could help me out and even collaborate on further research articles.

Best regards,

Hi Juan,

Thanks for your post on the community. If you’re interested you can write to Explain more about your use case and we’ll be able to assist you in developing a solution, for a cost.
Again thanks for posting on the community and welcome :slight_smile:


Thank you very much! I’ll do it,


Man, it sure would be cool to use LTE/cellular to create some sort of mesh network. I’d be interested in this, even outside of AutoPi. It seems VERY rare to see people using cellular tech to do anything but connect to the corporate towers. Probably some silly regulation preventing it.
