Objectives

5G-MOBIX aims to match the benefits of 5G technology with advanced CCAM use cases in order to enable innovative, previously unfeasible, automated driving applications with high automation levels, both from a technical and a business perspective. The goal of 5G-MOBIX will be achieved through the following objectives:

Requirements

5G-MOBIX will firstly formulate comprehensive requirements for CCAM using 5G.

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

x-Border trials

5G-MOBIX will then deploy CCAM 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 validation and testing 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

5G-MOBIX will use the data and experiences of x-border corridors and trial sites for cost benefit analysis and assessment of the commercial impact of technologies and deployment.

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.

Assessment

5G-MOBIX will explore and assess new business opportunities for CCAM with 5G.

As a result of the evaluations and international consultations with the public and industry stakeholders, 5G-MOBIX will identify new business opportunities for the 5G enabled CCAM and propose recommendations and options for its deployment.

Expansion

5G-MOBIX will scale up and replicate in order to provide global 5G deployment scenarios and recommendations for EU-wide 5G corridor deployment and beyond.

5G-MOBIX will define critical scenarios needing advanced connectivity provided by 5G, and the required features to enable some advanced CCAM use cases built on the cross-border and urban trials and the evaluation results. Recommendations will be provided to policy makers for the adoption of developed 5G technologies in European transport infrastructures.

Allocation

5G-MOBIX will sustain standardisation and provide recommendations for spectrum allocation.

Through its findings on technical requirements and operational conditions 5G-MOBIX will actively contribute to standardisation and spectrum allocation activities and cooperate with standardization bodies.
