The 5G Public Private Partnership (5G PPP) has recently published an interesting white paper about the challenges and opportunities deriving from the deployment of the 5G for Cooperative Connected and Automated Mobility (CCAM).
The white paper introduces the scope, use cases, trial sites and particularities of each of the three H2020-ICT-18-2018 5G PPP corridor projects: 5GCroCo, 5G-CARMEN and 5G-MOBIX.
These projects address a number of technical, organizational, business and administrative challenges that the provision of CCAM functionality over 5G connectivity poses in highway and national border (corridors) environments. The projects are performing 5G-enabled Autonomous Driving AD trials at national border conditions and are drawing useful insights regarding the challenges and opportunities of provisioning 5G-enabled CCAM services in cross-border conditions. This white paper, a joint effort by the three projects, presents their preliminary results, based on currently available technological enablers, with the capacity to mitigate and/or resolve the above-mentioned challenges. It also identifies and elaborates on the main concerns and challenges arising from deploying advanced CCAM use cases at regional borders.
The results jointly obtained from the three projects are of paramount importance for the 5G-Blueprint development and for fruitful cooperation.
