About 5G-Safe project

The 5G-Safe project proposes to improve road safety, optimize logistics and road maintenance, and contribute to the future of autonomous driving by delivering novel focused and time-critical services to vehicles, road users, and 3rd party organizations in a reliable and scalable manner. The overall goal can be broken down into the following six more specific objectives:

  1. Study and refine the novel 5G-inspired use cases for the automotive vertical sector and analyse the resulting requirements and business models for connectivity and services.
  2. Design and develop connectivity and data aggregation solutions for vehicles, fleets, and sensors using current technologies and analyse enhancements brought by 5G.
  3. Design and develop advanced road weather and safety services to vehicles, road users, and 3rd party organizations based on vehicular sensor data, telematics, and meteorological systems.
  4. Analyse the distribution of the service architectures and data processing closer to the network edge and end user and develop the required MEC applications.
  5. Perform technology evaluation using simulations, as well as piloting and testing of the developed solutions in 5G and vehicular test environments, including the latest technology.
  6. Utilize the results and cooperation in the project in extending or enhancing the product and research offerings of the partners, contributing to dissemination to public and scientific forums, and providing input to standardization.
5G-SAFE aims to reach the set goals by studying and developing the overall solution based on selected use cases representing the main usages and benefits of the system. The initial use cases, summarized in the table below, have been defined during the 1st phase of the project in cooperation with industry partners in order to ensure their relevance. Also, external sources, such as ongoing standardization and EU H2020 5G PPP activities related to the automotive vertical industry, were used as input.to work on security solutions that integrate seamlessly over different infrastructures such as Cloud Computing, Wireless Sensor Networks and Mobile technologies. The goal is to enable the Industrial Internet, where even small companies can easily deploy secure services operating across different infrastructures.
