5G for Connected and Automated Mobility Vertical Summit

Wednesday 13 OCT

IEEE 5G World Forum 2021

13-15 October 2021, ONLINE + Montreal, QB, Canada

The promise of Connected and Automated Mobility (CAM) – which adds a multi-modality component to Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CAV) – are Safer Rides (enhanced road safety), More Efficient Rides (lower emissions and reduced congestion) and Connected Rides (infotainment), not forgetting a significant impact on productivity, jobs and growth, as well as on global competitiveness. This can only 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. 

The scope of autonomy spans road, rail, waterways and coastal maritime, and the implementation scenarios extend from urban to remote rural areas, transcending national borders, to ensure critical cross-border service continuity for autonomous vehicles.

Considerable effort and funding, in both Europe and North America, has been put into large-scale testing and validation, and even pre-deployment, of 5G for CAM/CAV. The common objective is to move towards large-scale deployment.

This event will bring together a variety of projects from Europe and North America, to share their experiences and present their main achievements.
