Body
1. Overall Description:
The SAE Cellular V2X Technical Committee (C-V2X TC) was formed in June, 2017
with the following charter:

The SAE Cellular V2X Technical Committee reports to the Vehicle Engineering
Systems Group of the Motor Vehicle Council. The Committee is responsible for
adapting, developing and maintaining SAE Standards, Recommended Practices, and
Information Reports that use cellular radio access technologies and
specifically, evolving 4G LTE and 5G cellular technologies that require
interoperability and performance standards for road vehicles and other road
users in order to use the full capabilities of these technologies. The
committee also coordinates task force efforts to ensure efficient development
and delivery of SAE documents, acts as liaison to the other organizations
involved in the with vehicular-oriented cellular standards and deployments, and
organizes efforts in gathering requirements for SAE standardization and assigns
them to distributed task forces. The C-V2X Technical Committee will work
closely with the SAE DSRC Technical Committee and with their documents to
assure efficient reuse and adjustment as appropriate, e.g., strive to maintain
a single data dictionary. Participants in the SAE C-V2X TC include vehicle
OEMs, vehicle suppliers, mobile network operators, mobile network operator
equipment suppliers, mobile handset manufacturers, chipset manufacturers, road
operators, traffic equipment suppliers, consulting firms, government, and other
interested parties.

At the current time, three Task Forces constitute the C-V2X TC. The Task Forces
and charters are:

CV2X Advanced Applications Task Force: Develop definitions of terms, use cases,
recommended practices, guidelines, test methods, specifications and performance
standards for vehicles connected using C-V2X, focusing on advanced V2X
applications (i.e., applications that cannot be supported by DSRC and Rel-14
LTEV2X) that deal with 5G (3GPP NR and LTE evolution) to leverage enhanced
mobile broadband, use of millimeter wave and other anticipated radio access
technologies, and the next generation core network including enablers such as
NFV/SDN, edge computing, and network slicing. The task force will encourage
research in these areas, and sponsor and facilitate the development of related
standards. The work of this task force will be coordinated with other task
forces in C-V2X Technical Committee, as well as other V2X related technical
committees and standards organizations such as 3GPP, ATIS, GSM Association,
DSRC Technical Committee, On-Road Automated Driving (RAD) Technical Committee,
ITU-T and ETSI.

CV2X Direct Communication Task Force: Develop definitions of terms, use cases,
recommended practices guidelines, test methods, specifications and performance
standards for vehicles connected using C-V2X, focusing on safety applications
that include cooperative awareness, warning notification, safe lane change,
safe intersection and roundabout crossing, etc. Important topics of security,
reliability, and quality of service will be part of the charter. The task force
will encourage research in these areas, and sponsor and facilitate the
development of related standards. The work of this task force will be
coordinated with other task forces in CV2X Technical Committee, as well as
other V2X related technical committees and standards organizations such as DSRC
Technical Committee, On-Road Automated Driving (RAD) Technical Committee, 3GPP,
ISO, ITU-T and ETSI.

CV2X Road Operators Task Force: Work with the ground transportation operating
community to identify its high-level needs and develop standards, recommended
practices, and information reports to address those needs.

2. Actions:

To (SDOs and industry organizations):

ACTION: The SAE C-V2X welcomes mutual consideration and communication as we
jointly standardize applicable interoperability and performance specifications
to fully leverage 4G LTE and 5G cellular radio access technologies.

3. Date of Next SAE C-V2X Meetings:
3rd Wednesday of every month, 1000 Eastern Time US         WebEx
14-15 March, 2018           Southeast Michigan or Newark NJ (TBD)
