Large-scale 5G trial on cooperative, connected and automated driving: 5GCroCo starts!

28th November 2018

5GCroCo (Fifth Generation Cross-Border Control), is a € 17-million H2020 innovation action officially launched on 1st November 2018 as part of the 5G PPP Phase 3.

5GCroCo will enable the testing of 5G connectivity for the road environment in real-life scenarios at the European 5G cross-border corridor which covers kilometres of motorway connecting the cities of Metz in France, Merzig in Germany, and Luxembourg.

Three use cases related to Cooperative Connected and Automated Mobility (CCAM) services enabled by 5G technologies will be tested in the corridor:

  1. anticipated cooperative collision avoidance
  2. generation and distribution of dynamic high-definition maps for automated driving
  3. teleoperated driving

The three-year project is coordinated by the Centre Tecnològic de Telecomunicacions de Catalunya (CTTC, in Castelldefels, Barcelona, Spain) and gathers 24 partners from seven European countries, including key organisations from both the telecom and the automotive worlds. 5GCroCo coordinates contributions from leading car manufacturers, tier-1 suppliers, road authorities, mobile network operators, telecom vendors, and academia.

In 5GCroCo, Nextworks will work on the development of core services for Network Slicing, multi-domain resource orchestration, configurable monitoring and edge computing orchestration, and will adapt/apply MEC related network services to the tele-driving use case.
