5G for cooperative, connected and automated mobility (CCAM)


Fifth Generation Cross-Border Control (5GCroCo) researches connected, cooperative and autonomous mobility (CCAM) services within the use case of national border traversions of vehicles. Thereby the projects aims at providing seamless connectivity and the uninterrupted delivery of services, a scenario that poses interesting technical challenges.

Project description

5GCroCo therefore has different trailing sides like the cross-border regions of Metz-Merzig-Luxembourg and small-scale test sides in Spain, Sweden and Germany. The objective is to validate advanced 5G features, such as MEC-enabled distributed computing, Predictive QoS, Network Slicing, and improved positioning systems in order to enable innovative use cases for CCAM.

Research contribution

fortiss will contribute to the specification of use cases and further requirements of the small scale test sites in Munich, related to the system architecture of intelligent infrastructure systems, and with the further exploitation of distributed system-architectures in systems with mixed-criticality demands.

The fortiss researchers will provide their knowledge of intelligent infrastructure systems to the 5GCroCo project. Furthermore, fortiss will continue exploiting the intelligent infrastructure’s architecture, to provide a well-founded base for future infrastructure systems and their development.

fortiss will assist the tele-operated driving and mobile-edge-computing use cases by providing its experience in intelligent infrastructure systems and architectures, as well as the present infrastructure system at the A9 highway. Therefore, the already existing architecture shall get extended to be well prepared for systems with mixed-criticality, but especially critical system demands, to satisfy the requirements for the tele-operated driving use cases.
