From 5G to 6G Vision: A Connected and Automated Mobility perspective

5GMED has collaborated in the creation of this white paper, written by the 5G for Connected and Automated Mobility (CAM) Working Group of the 6G Industry Association.

Mobility is a fundamental necessity of our society. We need to move people and goods from one place to another for many different motivations. As a fundamental cornerstone of our way of life, mobility must be efficient, secure, inclusive, green, and smart. Smart in the sense that mobility must leverage the potential of digital technologies to achieve all the other goals. In this digitalization of mobility, connectivity emerges as a key element. For that reason, different research and innovation projects work to devise and standardise the way that the communication and mobility sectors must cooperate with each other.

Along this way, 5G technology has been the first communication technology, the first generation that has tried to systematically integrate and support all types of CAM services. In addition, the 5G ecosystem has also been developing a 360º analysis of the different pieces that must get together for a successful deployment of advanced CAM systems.

The 5G for CAM Working Group of the 6G Industry Association provide in the document their initial views on what 6G might look like and what implications this will have for CAM; reflect on the lessons learnt during the execution of the key 5G PPP projects which have been working on 5G for CAM; and anticipate their view on the impending new technologies that are being considered for 6G and they believe hold the potential to have a highly positive impact on CAM.

To do so, they answer five key questions in the white paper:

  1. How mobility is going to change?
  2. Why and how 5G will change road mobility?
  3. Which 5G PPP projects have been working on CAM and which are the key contributions and the main lessons learnt?
  4. What has been identified that is missing and beyond 5G will need to address?
  5. Which candidate 6G technologies will enhance CAM services?
