Motivation and Background

Jointly organised by the European H2020 projects 5GMETA and 5G-LOGINNOV, this workshop explores the various applications of 5G, with a focus on the logistics and automotive sectors. Data has become an extremely important asset, not only to cope with traffic congestion, environmental challenges and handle upcoming and future logistics capacity, but also to develop economic and innovative business opportunities for regions, industries, SMEs and high-tech start-ups. 5GMETA and 5G-LOGINNOV will not only use data to stimulate and facilitate innovative products and services, whilst ensuring data privacy, security, interoperability and ownership, but also use new, innovative concepts, applications and devices supported by 5G technologies, IoT, data analytics, next generation traffic management and CCAM to reach the above-mentioned goals. Thanks to the expertise of both project consortiums, which gather very relevant and well-positioned European stakeholders from research and academia, telecommunications, RTOs, clusters, incubators and industry, participants to the workshop will learn about the CAD and logistics challenges, architecture, innovations and services enabled by 5G. Participants will also have the opportunity to get involved in the projects’ future SME and start-up activities. Both projects will present their concrete actions, activities and 5G roadmaps through their respective living labs and use cases, which include use cases on R&D Live Training Loop, Networking Parking and Driving Safety & Awareness, Traffic Management Applications, Video Surveillance, Precise positioning, Predictive Maintenance and Real Time Tracking.
