5th Generation Connected & Automated Mobility Cross-Border EU Trials
Duration: 01/09/2020 – 31/08/2023 | Total funding: EUR 9,177,397.88
Challenge & Objectives
5G-ROUTES is a 5G-PPP Phase 3 project whose aim is to validate through robust evidence the latest 5G features and 3GPP specifications (R.16 & R.17) of Connected and Automated Mobility (CAM) under realistic conditions. In particular, it will conduct advanced large-scale field trials of most representative CAM applications to demonstrate seamless functionality across a prominent 5G cross-border corridor (Via Baltica-North), traversing Latvia, Estonia and Finland. This will help to boost confidence and accelerate the deployment of 5G-based interoperable CAM ecosystems and services throughout Europe. It also aims at validating 5G as a true enabler of innovative CAM services that cannot be realised by today’s technology. Specifically, 5G-ROUTES will provide:
Validation of >150 network, business and service-level KPIs for 13 diverse CAM use cases that require 5G performance capabilities, covering several V2X scenarios in automated cooperative, awareness and sensing driving. 5GROUTES also focuses on uninterrupted infotainment passenger services on the go and multimodal services in the context of complete connectivity-enabled ecosystems around passengers and cargo over 3 different modes of transport (vehicles, rails and maritime);
Innovative AI-based technological enablers for facilitating the execution of the field trials. Several scenarios will be considered for each use case covering cross-border, cross-telecom operators, cross telco-vendors, integrated cross terrestrial-satellite and cross-transport-mode settings. These will be incrementally validated, starting from lab trials, followed by localised large-scale trials at strategic cross-border locations (Valga city, Tallinn & ferry extension through the Gulf of Finland) and finally in larger-scale trials covering significant portions of transport routes along the selected corridor.
5G-ROUTES 22-partner consortium is driven by industry heavyweights and renowned organisations the majority of which participate in 30 out of 63 5G-PPP projects and in several 5G-PPP Working Groups.
In 5G-ROUTES, eBOS will participate in all the activities related to the requirements analysis, use cases and preparation for CAM trials. As part of the development of technological enablers for CAM trials, eBOS will lead the design and development of the Tenant Web Portal, and its deployment as a service in the cloud. eBOS will leverage the KPI visualisation system from the 5G-PPP project 5G-SOLUTIONS, extending its functionality to cover the CAM use cases in 5G-ROUTES. eBOS will also participate in the integration and testing of the project’s technological enablers along with the infrastructure setup and operational readiness.
eBOS will contribute towards onboarding and engaging with external SMEs and start-ups to encourage them to contribute to the project with new components, to address new CAM use cases and to submit ideas on how to best exploit 5G-ROUTES results. eBOS will also be engaged in collaboration activities with the 5G PPP Working Groups in which the company actively participates.
eBOS will undertake the role of Innovation & Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) Management of the project: eBOS will lead the activities related to the development of an effective innovation strategy and management of IPR resulting from the project. eBOS will also support the Project Coordinator, Ericsson Estonia, in quality assurance and risk management activities.
