Fifth Generation Cross-Border Control

Objective

The possibility of providing connected, cooperative and autonomous mobility (CCAM) services along different countries when vehicles traverse various national borders has a huge innovative business potential. However, the seamless provision of connectivity and the uninterrupted delivery of services along borders also poses interesting technical challenges. The situation is particularly challenging given the multi-country, multi-operator, multi-telco-vendor, and multi-vehicle-OEM scenario of any cross-border layout. Motivated by this, 5GCroCo brings together a strong consortium from both, European automotive and mobile communications industries, with the explicit support or road traffic authorities and the respective national governments (through letters of support), to develop innovation at the intersection of these two industrial sectors. The aim is to define a successful path towards the provision of CCAM services along cross-border scenarios and reduce the uncertainties of a real 5G cross-border deployment. 5GCroCo aims at trialling 5G technologies in the cross-border corridor connecting the cities of Metz-Merzig-Luxembourg, traversing the borders between France, Germany and Luxembourg. The objective is to validate advanced 5G features, such as New Radio, MEC-enabled distributed computing, Predictive QoS, Network Slicing, and improved positioning systems, all combined together, to enable innovative use cases for CCAM. 5GCroCo aims at defining new business models that can be built on top of this unprecedented connectivity and service provisioning capacity, also ensuring that relevant standardization bodies from the two involved industries are impacted. 5GCroCo validation will focus on three use cases: 1) tele-operated driving, 2) high definition maps for autonomous vehicles, and 3) Anticipated Cooperative Collision Avoidance (ACCA) and will also provide general recommendations for any other use cases.
