USE CASE 2
Road Infrastructure Digitalisation
The digitalisation of the road infrastructure with a network of sensors, enabling road operators to execute intelligent traffic management strategies that ensure uninterrupted, safe, and efficient mobility in a situation of mixed conventional and automated traffic.
Bringing road infrastructure closer to Level A in reference to ISAD classification (Infrastructure Support for Automated Driving).
The purpose of UC2 will be to prove that a 5G infrastructure can collect, analyse and disseminate messages within very short times, and with low latency. Also in cross-border scenarios.
The road infrastructure will be equipped with a set of HD cameras that will transmit the video stream to AI computing resources located at the Edge.
Software tools for automatic detection, analysis, management and dissemination of I2V and V2I messaging to improve global traffic safety will be deployed at the highway infrastructure.
Local actions, “real-time” service which implies traffic management procedures in a limited portion of the highway like in an area of a few km long (to be adjusted during the tests).
Wide area actions imply traffic management procedures on a large portion of the highway or the whole highway. The latency requirement is here looser.
Three services will be tested in UC2
- Relay of emergency messages sent by vehicle to infrastructure
- Automatic incident detection and local area traffic management
- Flow regulation by using a selected group of CAVs.
