Within the framework of the 5GMOBIX European Project, the General Assembly takes place today at CTAG between the Spanish and Portuguese partners, which is one of the main pilots of the 5GMOBIX project. The objective is to prepare the different milestones of the project, and to define the joint strategy for the deployment of 5G technology which will take place in the coming months.

The purpose of the 5GMOBIX project is to specify, deploy and evaluate 5G services that will support Connected, Cooperative and Automated Mobility (CCAM), defining in this way different use cases of Connected and Autonomous Driving that will use 5G technology as the communication base channel to improve the safety and comfort of the services deployed in the vehicles.

The corridor between Vigo and Oporto is the most important cross-border corridor where the tests defined within the scope of the project will be carried out. With the collaboration of the different partners it will be possible to carry out all the necessary deployment in the different parts that are covered: infrastructure, communications, telephony, vehicles, users, etc.

Thus, this corridor includes partners that cover the complete value chain, including public institutions, research centres, telecom companies and car manufacturers.

DGT, IMT, Telefónica, NOS, Nokia Bell Labs, Nokia Portugal, Vigo City Council, CTAG, Dekra, ALSA, AEVAC, University of Murcia, CCG, Infraestruturas de Portugal, Norte Litoral, Siemens, IT, TIS and A-To-B, form this Spanish-Portuguese consortium with the aim of strengthening the development of 5G technology and Autonomous Driving, which will become  reality in the coming years.

The first tests of the 5GMOBIX project will begin at the end of 2019, starting with tests in the laboratory and test tracks, arriving on the road throughout 2020. The tests will be extended until 2021 when the project will end.

CTAG participated in the 5G FORUM, a multidisciplinary meeting on 5G technology. Diego Bernárdez, Head of the Connectivity Department at CTAG, presented a paper on Cooperative systems and V2X communications. Protocols in DSRC (ITS-G5) and 5G. One of CTAG’s connected vehicles was also shown to present attendees its operation and performance.

The event, held on April 24 and 25 at the Polo de Contenidos Digitales in Malaga, offered a broad view on the different applications of this technology, from artificial intelligence to health and telemedicine. This is the first edition of the event whose objective is to show on stage every year the advances of 5G technology and offer the opportunity to exchange knowledge about its practical applications.

Outstanding companies involved in the use of 5G technologies shared their experiences and performed demonstrations for the attending professionals.
