1Specify and provide an Automotive Open Experimental Platform (AOEP).
The 5G-IANA AOEP consists of following main components:
The 5G-IANA Network Applications Orchestration and Development framework (NOD), the Slice Manager (SM) and the Multi-domain Service Orchestrator (MSO);
The virtualized infrastructure domains: OBU, RSU, MEC nodes, Cloud resources;
The 5G-IANA Network Applications toolkit linked with a new Automotive VNFs Repository.
A Distributed AI/ML (DML) framework, as part of the VNFs Repository.
2Specify and implement a repository environment for Network Applications and VNFs to ease the design and chaining of new Automotive-related services – to be integrated with 5G-PPP open repositories
5G-IANA will provide a set of VNFs (communication and baseline) and predefined Network Applications (“starter kit”/templates) that will make easier for new entrants and especially SMEs or start-ups to design and create their own 5G Automotive-relates application and services on top of existing services.
5G-IANA will develop the Automotive VNFs Repository specifications. Based on these specifications, the Repository will be developed and integrated with 5G-PPP repositories.
3Provide accurate localization and low latency mission-critical applications:
5G-IANA will utilise the NOD framework and the SM/MSO to deploy several cutting-edge Automotive functionalities allowing to accelerate the development of fully automated driving vehicles.
Beyond GNSS and RTK, multisensory positioning and Position and Time VNFs will deliver increased positioning accuracy.
VNFs and the proposed DML framework will allow QoS prediction and management to provide low latency connectivity for mission critical scenarios
4Define, implement and trial Connected and Automated Driving relevant Use Cases to validate and assess the AOEP suitability and functional improvements.
The AOEP will form an enhanced Automotive-related experimentation infrastructure (together with the vehicles) where the 5G-IANA Network Applications Toolkit and the VNFs Repository will provide functionalities for easing the design and chaining of new Automotive-related services.
The AOEP will be validated though 7 Use Cases. The capabilities of 5G-IANA solutions will be validated by external SMEs through mini-projects.
5Improve service creation time (5G-PPP KPI)
The 5G-IANA AOEP components are designed to deploy Automotive services with extremely low service creation time2 (instantiation and re-configuration).
Services will be developed with Network Applications and VNFs.
The Service Creation Time KPI specified for each Use Case will be assessed during defined trials.
6Create new business opportunities and boost market for start-ups and SMEs with Automotive Network Applications
5G-IANA solutions will make easier for new entrants to design and create their own application and services on top of existing Automotive services and application templates.
5G-IANA Network Applications toolkit and the developed Automotive VNFs Repository can be further leveraged by other developers to develop new businesses in the Automotive area.
5G-IANA will combine research on business models for SMEs especially on 5G enabled Automotive services; it will guide SMEs reaching market place in a reasonable time frame and very likely during 5G-IANA framework.
7Increase road safety by leveraging Connected and Automated Mobility using enhanced network performances:
5G-IANA will provide increased safety or improve traffic with real-time traffic data to vehicles coming from both vehicles and RSUs thus optimising routes and shortening the time-to-destination. This will contribute to reduce emissions and increase safety (real time hazard notification related data).
Automated driving is expected to foster car sharing mobility models so that 5G-IANA is also expected to reduce traffic volume combining with smart route planning and parking services. The AOEP will create a very flexible and agile service creation environment reacting very quickly to service demands.
8Ensure cross-domain and cross-platform interoperability and boost standardisation committees on NFV and Network orchestration.
5G-IANA focus on standardisation is to ensure interoperable deployment of Network Applications beyond vendor-specific implementation and across multiple domains, through active participation of 5G-IANA standardisation experts in selected Technical bodies and Working Groups.
Cross-domain and cross-platform interoperability will be showcased in 5G-IANA by deploying and validating AOEP and its components in 2 different 5G SA experimental facilities.
