The IEEE Wireless Communications and Networking Conference (WCNC) is one of the premier annual events of IEEE in the wireless research arena bringing together researchers, academics, industry, and government. WCNC 2023 will be held in Glasgow, home of four universities as well as the Scotland 5G Centre, stimulating the deployment of new wireless technologies across urban and rural areas and transforming society, economy and industry. WCNC 2023 will include technical sessions, tutorials, workshops, and technology and business panels. You are invited to submit papers, and proposals for panels, tutorials, and workshops, in all areas of wireless communications, networks, services, and applications.
MWC Barcelona is the world’s most influential event for the connectivity industry. It’s where worldleading companies and trailblazers share the latest thought leadership about the progression and
future of connectivity. Moreover, it is one of the best places for networking opportunities with mobile
and tech industry influencers.
5G-IANA first video was officially launched on 15th November 2022 at the TRA 2022 conference in Lisbon, Portugal.
5G-IANA team had the opportunity to present the video at the European Commission stand during the TRA 2022 conference. In parallel the video was launched on the project’s website through the project’s Youtube channel.
The first project-related video is animated and offers a short introduction to the project and its goals.
5G communications have permitted the automotive industry to develop and test new
applications not possible with previous wireless technologies. Remote driving is considered one
of such applications, due to the ultra-low latency, high reliability or the bandwidth needed. The
objective of 5G-IANA is to demonstrate the viability of remote driving on real scenarios and the
capabilities that 5G may bring.
The 5G-IANA platform will permit to reduce latency as well as improve reliability, reduce costs
and improve scalability. The remote driving application is based on a web platform where,
through 5G, users can control the vehicle located in any place, connected from a browser.
For a safety driving, the vehicle is equipped with a front and rear camera which provide realtime video. This video is also used to implement a deep learning algorithm in object detection
trained to provide the user warnings related with traffic rules or obstacles on the road. In
addition, to increase driving safety, the vehicle is equipped with a laser that indicates the
distance between the vehicle and the obstacles.
For instance, there are a couple of scenarios where remote driving is useful:
In summary, remote driving aims to provide greater comfort to people when performing certain
types of activities that do not require human presence, such as taking the car from one place to
another, picking up another person or delivering objects. This NetApp can cause a great impact
on the transport industry, since it can be adapted to large vehicles to transport material to sites
in dangerous areas, transport dangerous substances, transport goods to places that are far
away. Automotive industries enabling such a NetApp would safeguard the safety of the driver,
thus saving resources, and in the case of long journeys they would not need to stop the vehicle
for the driver to rest, but would simply be taken over by another operator, thus improving their
5G-PPP Steering Board and Technical Board meetings took place in Athens on 5-6 October 2022, respectively. Both meetings were hosted by our project coordinator, ICCS.
5G-IANA has actively participated during these meetings, represented by Eirini Liotou and Konstantinos Katsaros from ICCS, Dimitris Klonidis from UBI and Giada Landi from NXW. Our Project Manager, Eirini Liotou, has been the organizer and moderator of a NetApps session during the Technical Board meeting where interesting cross-ICT-41 discussions took place and collaboration opportunities have been identified.
During this session, Giada Landi (NXW) also gave the presentation “NetApps modelling for automated orchestration and experimental validation of 5G-enabled services in the Transport & Logistics domain”, organised jointly by VITAL-5G & 5G-IANA.
From 11th to 13th October our partner Bylogix wil present 5G-IANA project at IZB (International Supplier Fair) 2022 in Wolfsburg. Bylogix will participate at this event with an information stand in Hall 4- Stand 4102- where they will introduce 5G-IANA project to participants of the event and will make available the project’s communication materials.
IZB is the s Europe’s leading trade fair for the automotive supplier industry due to the location at the headquarters of Volkswagen AG. In a single location it’s possible to meet the entire automotive value chain and the decision makers in the industry. Innovation has a specific area where it’s possible new partner and build new R&D relationships.
ICCS, our project coordinator, is supporting the organisation of the two NetApps sessions that will take place during the Technology Board meeting. In the context of these sessions, interesting cross-ICT-41 discussions will be made regarding the NetApps recently released White Paper, a NetApp uniform definition, common marketplace, standardization aspects, and reachability to third parties, among others.
Furthermore, during the first NetApps session on 6th October, 5G-IANA partner NEXTWORKS will perform a joint presentation with VITAL-5G project: “NetApps modelling for automated orchestration and experimental validation of 5G-enabled services in the Transport & Logistics domain”.
14-17 November 2022, Lisbon (Portugal)
Portugal is hosting the 2022 edition of the Transport Research Arena, TRA, Europe’s largest mobility and transport research and technology conference.
Under the theme “Moving together, reimagining mobility worldwide”, TRA 2022 will focus on innovative solutions for the global transport sector.
Taking place at the CCL (Lisbon Congress Center), from November 14th to 17th, TRA will bring together leading national and international experts to debate the present and future of mobility. On the agenda there will be four major themes: intelligent solutions and society; green mobility and decarbonization; innovative infrastructures for Europe 2030; policies and economics for a competitive Europe.
5G-IANA will participate with a video at the European Commission stand.
TRA 2022 is organized by NAI (National Innovation Agency) IMT (Institute for Mobility and Transport), CES (Consortium of Engineering Schools), NLCE (National Laboratory for Civil Engineering), and Magellan European Affairs Association. It is co-organized in partnership with the European Commission and in collaboration with the technological platforms and European associations ACARE, ALICE, CEDR, ECTP, ERTRAC, ERRAC, ETRA and WATERBORNE.
