5G for cooperative & connected automated MOBIlity on X-border corridors

Project description

Ensuring seamless cross-border 5G connectivity for autonomous vehicles

High-speed, widely available 5G networks will be needed to support the data deluge that will arise from connected vehicles all communicating in real time. The scope of the EU-funded 5G-MOBIX project is to measure the added value of 5G connectivity for connected and automated mobility services and functionalities in cross-border conditions. The project aims to ensure that seamless connectivity is retained in cases when an autonomous vehicle crosses the border of a country and ceases to be served by its home 5G network. Trials will be conducted to assess the benefits of 5G for applications such as cooperative overtake, highway lane merging, truck platooning, remote driving and vehicle quality-of-service support.


5G-MOBIX aims at executing CCAM trials along x-border and urban corridors using 5G core technological innovations to qualify the 5G infrastructure and evaluate its benefits in the CCAM context as well as defining deployment scenarios and identifying and responding to standardisation and spectrum gaps.
5G-MOBIX will first define the critical scenarios needing advanced connectivity provided by 5G, and the required features to enable those advanced CCAM use cases. The matching between the advanced CCAM use cases and the expected benefit of 5G will be tested during trials on 5G corridors in different EU countries as well as China and Korea.
Those trials will allow running evaluation and impact assessments and defining also business impacts and cost/benefit analysis. As a result of these evaluations and also internation consultations with the public and industry stakeholders, 5G-MOBIX will propose views for new business opportunity for the 5G enabled CCAM and recommendations and options for the deployment.
Also the 5G-MOBIX finding in term of technical requirements and operational conditions will allow to actively contribute to the standardisation and spectrum allocation activities.
5G-MOBIX will evaluate several CCAM use cases, advanced thanks to 5G next generation of Mobile Networks. Among the possible scenarios to be evaluated with the 5G technologies, 5G-MOBIX has raised the potential benefit of 5G with low reliable latency communication, enhanced mobile broadband, massive machine type communication and network slicing.
Several automated mobility use cases are potential candidates to benefit and even more be enabled by the advanced features and performance of the 5G technologies, as for instance, but not limited to: cooperative overtake, highway lane merging, truck platooning, valet parking, urban environment driving, road user detection, vehicle remote control, see through, HD map update, media & entertainment.
