Driving forward Connected & Automated Mobility

5G-MOBIX

“This project will examine the implications of 5G and its role in the future of autonomous driving”

5G-MOBIX will develop and test automated vehicle functionalities using 5G core technological innovations along multiple cross-border corridors and urban trial sites, under conditions of vehicular traffic, network coverage, service demand, as well as considering the inherently distinct legal, business and social local aspects.


Solving problems, seizing opportunities

The 5G-MOBIX project aims to achieve it’s goals through the following objectives.

Requirements

Requirements for CAM using 5G

5G-MOBIX formulates a comprehensive set of 5G technological requirements for advanced CAM, relevant for the automotive, telecom, IT and services industries, as well as for R&D and public authorities. 5G-MOBIX conceptualizes the 5G reference framework tackling the overall lifecycle, from design to deployment of CAM and 5G network services.

x-Border trials

Deployment of CAM use cases as well as 5G road infrastructure and vehicles on x-border corridors and at local trial sites

Eight trials have been selected to cover most challenging scenarios and use cases (urban and highway, including cross-border) to ensure the testing and validation in a diverse set of 5G corridors rolled out in Europe, as well as Asia (China and South Korea) to further enhance alignment of views on 5G.

Analysis

Cost benefit analysis and impact assessment of 5G technologies and their deployment

5G-MOBIX develops and tests automated vehicle functionalities using 5G core technological innovations along multiple cross-border corridors and urban trial sites, under conditions of vehicular traffic, network coverage, service demand, as well as considering the inherently distinct legal, business and social local aspects. 5G-MOBIX will use the data and experiences of x-border corridors and trial sites for analysis and assessment.

Assessment

Assessment of new business opportunities for 5G-enabled CAM

A comprehensive breakdown of the variety of costs associated with 5G roll-out is performed, and the value chain that arises from 5G/CAM services and associated business models is estimated.

Standardisation

Recommendations on standardisation and regulatory gaps

The trials results, namely on interoperability tests between different systems and components, contribute to standardisation and 5G-MOBIX cooperates with standardization bodies. An analysis of the EU regulatory landscape for autonomous vehicles highlights the standardisation and regulatory gaps.

Expansion

Scaling up scenarios and recommendations for EU-wide 5G corridor deployment and beyond

5G-MOBIX defines critical scenarios needing advanced connectivity provided by 5G, and the required features, to enable some advanced CAM use cases built on the cross-border and urban trials results. Recommendations and options are provided to policy makers for 5G deployment in European transport infrastructures.

Press release: Breaking boundaries with 5G across the Spain-Portugal border

The first ever 5G autonomous driving public demonstration across the Spain-Portugal border will take place today at the International Bridge Tui-Valença. The demonstration attests to the added value of 5G technology for advanced Connected and Automated Mobility (CAM) services, and is part of the European funded 5G-MOBIX Final Demonstrations.

Pioneering 5G deployment across borders for CAM

Next week, at the Spain-Portugal border, the 5G-MOBIX project will present its results from 47 months of research and innovation activities on the use of 5G in cross-border situations, focusing particularly on Connected and Automated Driving (CAM).

5G for CAM Deployment Metastudy released

A synthesis of three Pan-European studies on 5G deployment for connected, automated mobility in border regions

Consortium

“sustainable and profitable 5G deployment in Europe and beyond”

The consortium's vision is to pave the way towards a sustainable and profitable 5G deployment in Europe and beyond, to significantly advance beyond the state of art, connected and automated driving functions and thus to accelerate the take-up of automated vehicles.
