The 2022 European ITS Congress in Toulouse will be taking place from 30th May to 1st June 2022.

The ITS Congresses represent the ultimate showcase of mobility services deployment and are the means for the ITS Community to keep pace with the incredible evolution of the industry. Over the years, the European Congresses have offered a platform for thought leaders, developers, entrepreneurs and decision makers from the transport, logistics and IT industries to share ideas and progress smart and sustainable mobility.

5G-IANA project will be present at this edition, participating on SIS 20 “5G for ITS: comms, computational challenges and prospects”. This session will take place on 31st of May from 10.30 to 11.15 am and will be moderated by 5G-IANA’s Project Coordinator ICCS. Links Foundation and Internet Institute will also participate representing the project.

5G is a key technology that enables advanced Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) and Cooperative Connected and Automated Mobility (CCAM) services. While discussions have focused on the new generation mobile network (infrastructure), including technological, business, and regulatory aspects, less attention has been paid to the connected vehicle side and the series of open questions emerging, while 5G technology gradually matures.

This session aims to answer some of these questions through an interactive panel of experts in the field, by discussing the HW/SW connectivity and computing capabilities that vehicles require in order to meet demands, the best practices from on-going experiments, the required balance between on-board and network-side functionality to achieve verifiable safety, as well as the vision and the roadmap for a smooth transition. In particular, the speakers will provide insights on:

  1. The digital Infrastructure support on Connected and Automated Driving, including examples from Austrian and Italian roads and takeaways from an OEM perspective;
  2.  5G Infrastructure Assisted Advanced Driving: results and lessons learned;
  3. Connected vehicles for improved safety in case of massive tunnel accidents;
  4. A flexible OBU/RSU platform ready to exploit the softwarization approach for easing the deployment of C-ITS services in the 5G context.
