5th Generation connected and automated mobility cross-border EU trials.
About the project: 5G-ROUTES is a 5G-PPP Phase 3 project whose aim is to validate through robust evidence the latest 5G features and 3GPP specifications (R.16 & R.17) of Connected and Automated Mobility (CAM) under realistic conditions. In particular, it will conduct advanced large-scale field trials of most representative CAM applications to demonstrate seamless functionality across a prominent 5G cross-border corridor (Via Baltica-North), traversing Latvia, Estonia and Finland. This will help to boost confidence and accelerate the deployment of 5G-based interoperable CAM ecosystems and services throughout Europe. It also aims at validating 5G as a true enabler of innovative CAM services that cannot be realized by today’s technology.
WINGS Role: In 5G-ROUTES, WINGS leverages on its expertise in Distributed resource management in order to conduct resource selection in cross border situations (from single domain to involving the domains of two operators). There will be cooperation and preparation of the two domains, in order to ensure service continuity at similar quality levels. In addition, experience in Slicing / Slice negotiation will enable Vertical stakeholders (e.g., content providers, logistic operators) to negotiate and optimize the slices they will obtain for offering their services in cross border contexts (i.e., by interacting with the domains of two operators). Mechanisms will also be used for the validation of KPIs that will associated with the use cases. Extensions will occur, when needed, for supporting additional KPIs. WINGS is also experienced in Automated and secure logistics and customs operations. Functionality will be used as a basis, which will be extended to include the multimodal goods-transfer facet in 5G-ROUTES. Components like OBU, cargo control, mobility/traffic predictions, and others will be reused in 5G-ROUTES.
