During 2020, the project known as “5G Ride” will begin. The project is run by Urban ICT Arena, through a partnership with Ericsson, Keolis, Telia and Intel.
The purpose of the project is to connect autonomous vehicles to demonstrate safe monitoring with 5G, transfer the driver to an outside position of the vehicle and releasing resources for improved public transports. This is to be done through monitoring of AV´s using a Control tower and Innovation cloud, and implicates a further step towards commercialization of self-driving vehicles.
The 5G Ride project is to enable smart & safe public transportation through connectivity & automation, basic development of 5G connected autonomous vehicles with support of control tower function, public acceptance of self-driving vehicles and provide a last mile solution
More information about the project and the exact launch date will be available soon.
