CTAG performs autonomous driving tests on the International Bridge that connects Spain with Portugal

Autonomous driving tests have begun on the A55 International Bridge that connects Spain with Portugal, which also belongs to the SISCOGA4CCAM corridor. This Spain-Portugal cross-border corridor connects the cities of Vigo and Porto and covers the entire value chain, including car manufacturers, telecommunications companies, public administrations and research institutions.

The tests will be carried out within the framework of the 5GMOBIX project during the months of March, April and May. The main objective of 5G-MOBIX is to lay the foundation for the deployment of 5G CCAM services and applications and to give a big boost in both countries towards the development of opportunities around 5G in the ITS sector. Furthermore, this cross-border corridor will explore the challenges of seamless interoperability between different countries and between different types of operators (public and private). The aim of this project is to develop a global 5G architecture that offers highly robust and low latency connectivity services for safety applications, provide high precision 5G positioning solutions, demonstrate and validate the concepts developed, and quantify the benefits of this technology in terms of driving.

These tests are carried out with the support of the competent traffic management authorities, such as the Dirección General de Tráfico (DGT), Infraestructuras de Portugal, S.A., the Instituto da Mobilidade e dos Transportes, and the Ministerio de Transportes, Movilidad y Agenda Urbana, who authorize and facilitate the management of road closures necessary for the execution of tests with 5G technology in the safest possible way.

The tests being performed include various autonomous driving use cases in urban and interurban environments. Among these use cases the Overtaking, Lane Merge and HD Maps manoeuvres stand out, carried out with autonomous and connected vehicles capable of integrating 5G technology to increase the response capacity in manoeuvres.

Logotipos de Grupo Antolín y CTAG. e-SPACE: Nueva generacióin de interiores de vehículos ante los futuros retos de movilidad

CTAG y Grupo Antolin lanzan la Unidad Mixta e-SPACE con el objetivo de investigar en torno a nuevos conceptos asociados a elementos de interior de automóviles en los que, mediante electrónica, sea posible integrar funciones innovadoras que den respuesta a las necesidades que surgirán alrededor de los nuevos conceptos de movilidad.

Los resultados de e-SPACE serán generadores de nuevo conocimiento que dará lugar a futuros proyectos de investigación y desarrollo, aumentando la actividad innovadora del sector de automoción en Galicia.

Logotipos: Xunta de Galicia, Consellería de Economía, Emprego e Industria. GAIN, Axencia de Innovación. Unión Europea, Fondo Europe de Desenvolvemento Rexional "Unha maneira de facer Europa"

La Unidad Mixta de Investigación e-SPACE ha sido subvencionada por la Axencia Galega de Innovación, en el marco de la convocatoria de “Subvencións para a creación e posta en marcha de Unidades Mixtas de Investigación” (DOG Nº 127, de 4 de julio de 2018), cofinanciada con cargo al Fondo Europeo de Desarrollo Regional (Feder) en el marco del programa operativo Feder Galicia 2014-2020, con código de expediente IN853A-2018/02, y contando con el apoyo de la Consellería de Economía, Emprego e Industria de la Xunta de Galicia.

CTAG coordinates the ITS España course on Automated and autonomous driving

This course, organised by ITS España, took place last October 17 at the Dirección General de Tráfico in Madrid. In addition to CTAG, a number of organisations and companies involved in autonomous driving collaborated, including DGT, INSIA, ASTI, Ferrovial, Here, RACC and Telefónica. The course was coordinated by Francisco Sánchez Pons, Director of Electronics and Intelligent Transport Systems at CTAG.

This was an excellent opportunity to go into detail about the technologies involved in automated and autonomous driving together with outstanding professionals of the sector. The main international initiatives and projects in this field were presented as well as topics on which the vehicle of the future is being built: technologies, legislative aspects, infrastructures, connectivity and validation and set-up. This last topic was presented by Rosa Blanco, Head of the Department of Validation of Electronic Systems, Quality and HMI at CTAG.
