5G for Cooperative Connected and Automated Mobility: towards more safety and efficiency

5G-MOBIX French Trial site Demonstration & Seminar

The 5G-MOBIX project aimed to evaluate the added value of 5G connectivity for connected and Automated Mobility (CAM) services and functionalities in cross-border conditions.

5G-MOBIX trial sites included two Cross-Border Corridors (Greece-Turkey and Spain-Portugal) and six local Trial Sites in France, Germany, Netherlands, Finland, China and South Korea. The local sites brought additional and complementary insights to the cross-border trials. The French Trial Site contributions were related to service continuity and dynamic communication quality aspects for the infrastructure-assisted advanced driving use case.

There was also a presentation of 5gmed, in it we told all the particularities of the project. For us it was very important to be in this event because we are a sister project.
