5G-ROUTES Kick off Meeting

On the 17th and 18th of September 2020, a new 5G related project with acronym “5G-ROUTES” and title “5th Generation connected and automated mobility cross-border EU trials” held a successful online kick-off meeting with the participation of 22 partners and the coordination of ERICSSON EESTI AS, by Mr. Urmas Ruuto.

5G-ROUTES project, will last 3 years and conclude in August 2023. Is a 5G-PPP Phase 3 project whose aim is to validate through robust evidence the latest 5G features and 3GPP specifications (R.16 & R.17) of Connected and Automated Mobility (CAM) under realistic conditions. In particular, it will conduct advanced large-scale field trials of most representative CAM applications to demonstrate seamless functionality across a prominent 5G cross-border corridor (Via Baltica-North), traversing Latvia, Estonia and Finland.

During the meeting all the partners introduced their organisations and the discussion was mainly focused on the role of each partner in the project, but also the work needs to be performed under each Work Package, especially during the first 6 months of the project. Moreover, the main goal was to establish a common vision for the project.
