Webinar 5G-MOBIX Finland 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 trialled at the Corridors).
This webinar presented the Finland Trial Site contributions and trial results testing 5G service continuity solutions with a focus on remote driving use case in a 5G multi-PLMN environment. These solutions ensure availability of adequate vehicle-to-network connectivity for continuous transmission of the data traffic streams from the vehicle to the Remote Operations Centre (ROC), and timely reception of command messages from ROC to the vehicle.
