Online Workshop IOTHINGS / 5G CARMEN

The 5G CARMEN project organizes on the 30th October from 11:30 to 13:00 CET an online workshop "Preparing for 5G: application scenarios for connected and assisted driving in the Munich-Bologna corridor".
During this workshop, the initiative of the European Commission 5G CARMEN will be presented to encourage the adoption of this technology for Autonomous Driving services in the Brenner motorway corridor. Through interaction with the industrial partners of the project – including Centro Ricerche Fiat and TIM Research Center – we will try to exploit the innovation capacity of the SMEs participating in the event, giving space to the presentation of their ideas and their potential services.

Call for ideas for 5G Autonomous Driving

5G-CARMEN has launched a call addressed to SMEs. The Call represents a unique opportunity for SMEs and start-ups willing to challenge themselves to show their offers to large telecom operators, ICT vendors and road operators. Learn more and apply here to experiment your 5G Idea and meet the industrial partners and the telco operators of the 5G CARMEN Consortium. For additional information contact: 5g-carmen-fbk@fbk.eu

5G Automotive Association (5GAA) conference

The 5G Automotive Association (5GAA) organised a conference bringing together EU representatives and the connected automotive ecosystem to the heart of Europe, to officialise its public-private partnerships with several European authorities. In parallel to the Conference, 5GAA hosted an exposition of C-V2X technology to demonstrate readiness and showcase the most recent test, trials and deployment projects.

5G-CARMEN has been invited to the exposition to demonstrate its use cases and discuss its plans for the deployment of compelling cross-border pilots for Cooperative, Connected and Automated Mobility (CCAM) services in the Bologna-Munich highway corridor. Here the press release. An outcome report of the conference is available here.

Future Mobility Expoforum 

The second edition of the Future Mobility Expoforum has attracted 2500+ visitors representing the industrial and service sectors for the transport of people and goods. The halls of the Lingotto Congress Center hosted 13 congress and 3 National Conferences, animated by 143 speakers. 5G-CARMEN has been presented in the “Smart Road & Smart Traffic” session, and was also present with its own booth in the exhibition organized in parallel to the conference, demonstrating its use cases and solutions. Here the presentation made during the event and the website of the event.

The Way Towards the Internet of Things: Open Standards vs Silos

The Conference gathered academics, practitioners, officials from National Regulatory and Competition Authorities, the European Commission and representatives of the industry to discuss in a lively and balanced debate the controversies regarding standards and interoperability in IoT.

The panel addressed a particularly promising application of the IoT: self-driving vehicles (SDV). To an increasing extent, SVD are no longer the subject of science fiction. Autonomous vehicles are not just tested in Silicon Valley, late-stage testing is also conducted in Europe. For instance, demonstrations of various aspects of autonomous driving technology have taken place in Turin, Italy, and the transition from the trial phase to the commercial application of the technology can be expected before too long. The panelists were Ilja Rudyk (European Patent Office), Giovanni Romano (Telecom Italia, 3GPP), Javier Gozálvez Sempere (University Miguel Hernández de Elche) and Lorenzo Casaccia (Qualcomm). The presentation from TIM was focused on mobile networks in providing support to self-driving vehicles and on the important roles European-funded projects play. 5G Carmen was indicated as an important example of how to manage cross-country cross-operator scenarios. An outcome report of the conference is available here.

The 5 cross border corridor projects by “5G CARMEN, 5G MOBIX and 5G CroCo” win the best booth award at EuCNC 2019!
The 28th edition of this year was co-located with the 5Global event in Valencia and more than 600 delegates gathered together in an exhibition space of over 1,500 square meters for one of the most important communication and networking conferences in Europe, bringing together cutting-edge research with world-famous industries and companies.

The demonstrations of 5G CARMEN use cases at the EUCNC 2019 has been dedicated to advances in 5G V2X communications and the vision of deploying such advances in connected and autonomous cars. 5G is regarded as the key technology that will empower the transition to autonomous driving. For the success of such a revolution, in 5G CARMEN the telecom and the automotive industry is cooperating together to shape the future by addressing all the challenges that connected, cooperative and autonomous mobility (CCAM). The challenges and the approaches to reduce the uncertainties of a 5G deployment, in multi-country, multi-operator, multi-vendor, and multi-car-manufacturer scenarios, have been presented, and the adoption of 5G technologies for CCAM services have been discussed with hundreds of visitors at the 5G CARMEN booth. The participants were clearly inspired by our lively and fresh booth and being recognized for Best Booth is a great honor! See you in the next edition of EuCNC in Dubrovnik!

Joint 5G-CARMEN Workshop at EuCNC
5GCARMEN and 5G-CroCo/5G-MOBIX are organizing a joint workshop at EuCNC (Valencia, 18-21 June 2019).
