On 10 May, in the presence of European Commission officials and other high-ranking representatives from the Greek and Turkish political and business worlds, a public demo event was held at the Greek-Turkish cross-border road bridge of Evros between the towns of Kipoi and Ipsala.
The International project 5G-MOBIX will initiate cross-border trials in the third quarter of 2021. In November 2015, a Citroën car became the first car to complete the highway trajectory between Vigo and Madrid without the intervention of the driver. Supported by a GPS navigator, integrated radars, scanners, digital cameras, and an electronically guided switchboard, the prototype adjusted its speed and overtaking during the 599 kilometer-long trajectory consisting of highways and roads. Apart from the car itself, the highways that it circulates on are just as important and the new trials of the European project 5G-MOBIX, created to deploy and evaluate 5G services that will support connected mobility and CCAM, consist exactly of these types of tests.
This brochure aims at providing a schematic and visual summary of the key use cases, key performance indicators, and tests and pilots being conducted in the context of research and innovation projects funded by the 5G-PPP which contribute to enabling efficient and reliable 5G-V2X communications for CAM.
From 8 to 11 June, European projects 5G-MOBIX, 5G-LOGINNOV (both coordinated by ERTICO) and 5G-META (coordinated by ERTICO Partner Vicomtech) participated in the EuCNC & 6G Summit presenting their activities that advance 5G in the automotive and logistics sectors.
The 'situation of autonomous and sustainable mobility' was the protagonist of the event held at the Palacio de Neptuno in Madrid. Organized by the MKT Mobility Observatory, together with Skiller Academy and the Spanish Association of Connected Autonomous Vehicle (AEVAC), it had experts from the sector who delved into the present and future of the same, in a hybrid event with streaming retransmission.
Aitor Fernández, president of the Spanish Association of Connected Autonomous Vehicles (AEVAC), presented the advantages of the autonomous vehicle: "Autonomous mobility is going to represent a revolution at an economic level as has rarely been seen.
Sustainable mobility and technology professionals meet to discuss the 'situation of autonomous and sustainable mobility', including Juan Antonio Muñoz-Gallego, CEO of Skiller ; Renato del Bino, Cofounder at Nort3; Aitor Fernández, president of the Spanish Association of Connected Autonomous Vehicle (AEVAC) ; David Fidalgo, Cofounder & Vice-president at AEVAC-Spanish Autonomous Vehicle Association; Alejandro Cros, deputy general manager and head of automotive at MINCOTUR; Paco Álvarez, Director of Communication at Vecdis; and Lola Ortiz, general director of Planning and Mobility Infrastructures of the Madrid City Council.
Aitor Fernández, president of the Spanish Association of Connected Autonomous Vehicles (AEVAC), presented the advantages of the autonomous vehicle: "Autonomous mobility is going to represent a revolution at an economic level as has rarely been seen. We are going to have access to new services and generate value like we have never done before. "
[...] In addition, the association explains that they are developing proposals for autonomous vehicles such as the 5G-MOBIX project : “It is the largest project at the European level that links 5G technology with autonomous mobility and seeks to study what happens when a vehicle makes a transit in border. From AEVAC we are responsible for studying those recommendations that are going to be issued to the European Union related to the standardization of 5G ”.
Alsa, the only people mobility company in Europe that participates as a strategic partner in the European 5G-Mobix project, will be in charge of testing the potential of 5G technology in passenger transport and its role in the future of cooperative mobility, connected and autonomous (CCAM), within the Spain-Portugal cross-border corridor.
