CTAG hosts a working meeting on this European Project focused on the use of 5G technology to achieve safer autonomous driving.
During the meeting, on March 21, 22 and 23, the first tests of 5GCAR are being carried out. This Horizon 2020 project, which is within the framework of the 5GPPP programme, started in June of 2017 lasting for 24 months. It has a global budget of 8 million euros.
The main objectives of the project are the following:
- Developing a 5G global architecture that allows high robustness and low latency connectivity services for V2X safety applications.
- Providing high precision 5G positioning solutions for vulnerable users and vehicles.
- Demonstrating and validating the concepts developed, quantifying the benefits that 5G V2X technology can provide in both conventional and autonomous driving scenarios.
CTAG’s participation is focused on the implementation and integration in vehicles of coordination systems for lane joining manoeuvres, cooperative perception and protection of vulnerable users, highlighting their development in the areas of machine vision, data fusion algorithms and connectivity.
The 5G CAR Consortium, led by ERICSSON and made up of 14 companies and knowledge centres, both in the telecommunications sector and the automotive sector, includes the following organisations: ERICSSON, HUAWEI, NOKIA, ORANGE, PSA GROUP, VOLVO CARS, BOSCH, MARBEN, VISCODA, SEQUANS, Chalmers University of Technology, King’s College London, Centre Tecnològic de Telecomunicacions de Catalunya and CTAG.
