  • François Fischer (ERTICO, Belgium)
  • Jesus Alonso-Zarate (CTTC, Spain)


Motivation and Background

Both the telecom and the automotive industries are going through profound transformations these day. The automotive industry is evolving towards a vision where cars are becoming autonomous and wirelessly connected to cooperate with each other for a safer and more efficient driving.

5G is regarded as the key technology that will empower this transition. For the success of such a revolution, it is necessary that both the telecom and the automotive industry cooperate together to shape the future by addressing all the challenges that connected, cooperative and autonomous mobility (CCAM) brings into the innovation arena.

The goal of this workshop is to bring both experts and projects from automotive and the mobile communications industries to discuss on the successful path towards CCAM services with the use of 5G technologies. 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, will be discussed and analysed. The validation via trials and the optimization of 5G technologies for CCAM services are additional topics of the workshop to pave the way for the preparation of commercial deployments.
