5G paves the future for connected vehicles

With the evolution of 5G, the automotive and telecommunication industries are working to create a Connected, Cooperative and Automated Mobility (CCAM). Connected vehicles are enabling easier, safe and hassle-free road traffic while bringing vehicle infotainment to the next level. 5GMED will demonstrate advanced CCAM and Future Railway Mobile Communications System services (FRMCS)...

Wi-Fi Dedicated Short Range Communications or Cellular Vehicle to Everything: which technology will prevail to create smart traffic systems?

Vehicles are becoming more and more autonomous and smart traffic systems are closer to become a reality. But which technology is better to create connected cars? The choice is between the existing Wi-Fi standard called DSRC (Dedicated Short Range Communications) or CV2X (Cellular Vehicle to Everything), that would eventually use 5G...

What are Europe’s 5G cross-border corridors?

European countries and industry are cooperating to prepare the large-scale deployment of 5G corridors for Connected and Automated Mobility on European transport paths. The European Commission defined digital cross-border corridors, where vehicles can physically move across borders and where cross-border road safety, data access, data quality and reliability, connectivity and digital...

Smart Sensors

Smart sensors provide object classification and state estimation (position, speed, etc.) in real time. In the 5GMED project, the introduction of Artificial Intelligence-based smart sensors on the network might suppose stringent requirements for the network edge, including the necessity to process real-time video feeds. The video below shows a solution that is able to be deployed...
