v IEEE 5G Summit

IEEE 5G Virtual Summit (Brussels)



May 11-12, 2021

In the context of the European 5G Action Plan, the mobility vertical, spanning road, rail, water ways and coastal maritime, including a multi-modality component, has been singled out as a driver of the European Single Digital Market. The main societal objectives of Connected and Automated Mobility (CAM) are Safer Rides (enhanced road safety), More Efficient Rides (lower emissions and reduced congestion) and Connected Rides (infotainment). But the impact of CAM on jobs and growth, as well as on global competitiveness, will be paramount. This will be achieved by building a complete ecosystem around infrastructure, equipment and services on top of 5G advanced connectivity, whilst mutualizing the huge investments in mobile and fixed broadband. Considerable effort and funding (from Horizon 2020) has been put into large-scale testing and validation, and even pre-deployment, of 5G namely in cross-border segments of Trans-European Transport Corridors. The objective is now to move towards large-scale deployment across the Continent. This first 5G for CAM conference will bring together a variety of EU-funded projects in the area of CAM, to share their experiences and present results with a view towards deployment. As Horizon 2020 is open to International participation, the event will also provide an opportunity to address a broader global perspective.
