The European Commission, together with the University of Luxembourg, is pleased to announce the first IEEE 5G for CAM Summit, which will be held virtually from 11 to 12 May 2021. The 5G-LOGINNOV project will be presented at the event by project manager Eusebiu Catana.
In the context of the European 5G Action Plan, the mobility vertical, spanning road, rail, water ways and coastal maritime, including a multi-modality component, has been singled out as a driver of the European Single Digital Market. The main societal objectives of Connected and Automated Mobility (CAM) are Safer Rides (enhanced road safety), More Efficient Rides (lower emissions and reduced congestion) and Connected Rides (infotainment). But the impact of CAM on jobs and growth, as well as on global competitiveness, will be paramount. This will be achieved by building a complete ecosystem around infrastructure, equipment and services on top of 5G advanced connectivity, whilst mutualizing the huge investments in mobile and fixed broadband. Considerable effort and funding (from Horizon 2020) has been put into large-scale testing and validation, and even pre-deployment, of 5G namely in cross-border segments of Trans-European Transport Corridors.
The objective is now to move towards large-scale deployment across the Continent, to share their experiences and present results with a view towards deployment. As Horizon 2020 is open to International participation, the event will also provide an opportunity to address a broader global perspective.
The 5G-LOGINNOV consortium submitted a paper to the IEEE 5G for CAM summit. This paper describes the Hamburg, Athens and Luka Koper Living Labs and the corresponding Use Cases that will be demonstrated in the context of 5G-LOGINNOV. The paper can be found here.
