CONNECTED CAR, 5G AND MONACO-BOLOGNA MOBILITY CORRIDOR

600 km, 3 countries (Italy, Austria and Germany), 15 partners under the guidance of FBK CREATE-ENT as coordinator. These are the numbers of the “Monaco-Bologna corridor”, one of the 6 major “corridors” promoted by the EC to improve the mobility of goods and people throughout Europe. Connected vehicles in an increasingly digital world, this is the scenario that has driven the European member states to sign a letter of intent for a large-scale collaborative effort in the field of connected and automated driving. The objective of the “mobility corridors” is to design and experiment the safe and sustainable mobility of the future through autonomous driving vehicles, the autonomous management of commercial fleets (trucks) and the advanced management of emergencies. The key technological factor is the 5G for the implementation of a new concept of connected and automated vehicles: a smart living environment to meet the needs of mobility in smart cities and throughout the European road network. The Monaco-Bologna corridor will also represent the test bench for cross-border testing, which makes the project a pilot of international interest.
