5G-IANA accelerates the adoption of 5G enabled remote driving applications

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:

  • Industrial control: The first scenario aims at having the possibility of control an AGV
    located on a manufacturing company via 5G connection. This will allow to avoid
    accidents between people and vehicles due to the controller will be placed out of the
    operation zone.
  • Transport in long journeys: The second scenario is related mainly in material transport
    but is also useful for other use cases. In case of long journeys, drivers would not need to
    stop the vehicle to rest. The remote driving control would take over from one driver to
    another, thus improving their service time.

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
service times.

5G-PPP SB and TB f2f Meetings


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.
