5G-Blueprint wastes no time. Only a few months after its kick-off, the project was part of the latest edition of the IEEE Consumer Communications and Networking Conference (IEEE CCNC), sponsored by the IEEE Communications Society.
IEEE CCNC is a major annual international conference organized with the objective of bringing together researchers, developers, and practitioners from academia and industry who work in all areas of consumer communications and networking.
The 18th IEEE CCNC held virtually on January 9-12, 2021, presented the latest developments and technical solutions in the areas of home networking, consumer networking, enabling technologies (such as middleware), and novel applications and services.
5G-Blueprint’s technical coordinator, prof. Johann Marquez-Barja had the chance to present the work entitled “Enabling cross-border teleoperated transport in the 5G Era: the 5G-Blueprint approach” and to interact with the audience of this renowned event.
Prof. Marquez-Barja’s presentation was focused on the innovative 5G-enabled teleoperated transport that will be designed, tested, and validated in a real environment within the 5G-Blueprint project.
The attendees showed interest in the potential new opportunities that 5G-Blueprint’s outcomes can bring to the automotive and transport sector. During the discussion, they generated some questions on how to follow the project updates and how to join it. At the same time, the networking and communication community expressed interest in the technical specifications and requirements that the teleoperation-related use cases pose to 5G networks. Although our project is still in an early stage, it has already attracted the attention of both industry and academia.
