Motivation and Background

The 5thgeneration of mobile networks, promises significant qualitative and quantitative advances for multiple vertical domains, including the fast evolving automotive sector. However, most studies and investigations contribute to and assess these advances under the implicit assumption of a single network service provider, with typical national coverage. A series of 5G-PPP Research Projects, notably ICT-18-2018: 5G-MOBIX, 5G-CARMEN and 5G-CroCo, has targeted this limitation, explicitly focusing on a series of challenges emerging for Cooperative Connected and Automated Mobility (CCAM) applications, in the context of the inherent (inter-)national mobility and cross-border and/or multi-operator environments. Running now for more than two years, the projects have established a deep understanding of these challenges, have developed corresponding solutions, and are now starting to produce experimental results from 5G deployments across a series of European cross-border corridors, but also, national multi-operator trial sites.
This workshop aims to bring together the experiences gained in these projects, targeting a focused discussion on the technical challenges, considered solutions and most importantly, preliminary results from the ongoing cross-border trials along 5G cross-border corridors across Europe. The event will offer the opportunity to consolidate views and promote the understanding of the various barriers and opportunities brought by 5G, for CCAM, exposing the first lessons learned from 5G network deployments and corresponding trials in these projects. Discussions, including a panel, we explore the implications for the future of 5G deployment and the prospects for the support of seamless CCAM service provisioning.
