Webinar 5G-MOBIX French Trial Site's results and lessons learnt on 5G for CAM

The 5G-MOBIX EC project trials have been assessing the added value of 5G connectivity for connected and Automated Mobility (CAM) services and functionalities in cross-border conditions. 5G-MOBIX trial sites include two Cross-Border Corridors (Greece-Turkey and Spain-Portugal) and six local Trial Sites in France, Germany, Netherlands, Finland, China and South Korea (bringing complementary insights to the cross-border issues trialed at the Corridors).

This webinar presented the French Trial Site contributions related to service continuity and dynamic communication quality aspects for the infrastructure-assisted advanced driving use case.


Camille Plestan has a degree in European project management and works as a European project manager at VEDECOM since 2019. She is in charge of setting up collaborative projects at national and European level on connected and automated vehicles. Recently involved in the European H2020 project “AUTOPILOT” on IoT for automated driving, she was co-leading the work package on trials coordination on 6 pilot sites (FR, ES, NL, FI, IT, KR) deploying 4 use cases (Urban driving, Platooning, Highway Pilot, AVP). She is now in charge of the coordination of 5G-MOBIX trials.

Laurent Février has worked during 20 years for military communication systems in Thales where he was involved at the early days in ATM (2 Patents), OMG and SdR.
