In the European Research and Innovation project 5G-Blueprint, 26 public-private partners are exploring the use of 5G communication technology to remotely control vehicles and ships for transport and logistics. Reliable 5G connectivity can improve road safety and the efficiency of logistics processes. Moreover, the results of the 5G-Blueprint, when combined with other technologies and functionalities, can be seen as an important ‘missing technical piece’ of the puzzle for the possible future deployment of more and more autonomous driving and shipping. In the future, it will be possible to divide a fully travelled route into sections where a human remotely controls the vehicle or vessel via teleoperation, and sections where the vehicle or vessel can safely drive or sail autonomously (empty motorway at night, clear waterway, etc.). In the final phase of the project, the ‘teleoperation technology’ was intensively tested in three different locations: Vlissingen, Antwerp and at the Belgian-Dutch border crossing between Sas van Gent and Zelzate.

The 5G-Blueprint partners are pleased to share the results of this research with you at a final showcase event.

Date: November 21st 2023
Location: Industrial Museum Zeeland, Sas van Gent, The Netherlands

The event is free of charge, but registration is mandatory, due to limited seats – REGISTER HERE
