IEEE 95th VTC2022-Spring: 2nd Workshop on 5G-Enabled Safety and Support Services for CCAM
19 Jun 2022 - 22 Jun 2022
Safety and support services running on top of 5G network infrastructures provide a great opportunity to enable Cooperative, Connected, and Automated Mobility (CCAM) for automotive and transport verticals in a variety of road conditions and operational environments. As the rollouts of commercial 5G networks continue all over the world, the increasing coverage and continuously evolving capabilities of the technology make it an ideal connectivity platform for a variety of Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) communication scenarios. Critical network-based services enhancing road traffic safety can exploit the Ultra-Reliable Low Latency Communication (URLLC) services offered by 5G. Moreover, non-critical support services could leverage Enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB) and Massive Machine Type Communications (mMTC) services provided by 5G networks and facilitate the operation of the intelligent road transport systems as well as the comfort and wellbeing of the drivers and passengers.
The aim of the workshop is to exploit these opportunities from several perspectives. First, the workshop distributes the latest results assessing the suitability of the currently standardized 5G functionalities in a variety of CCAM scenarios. Second, the workshop discusses the gaps identified in the existing 5G capabilities when it comes to the heterogeneous requirements, stemming from these scenarios, and offers new technological solutions to fill the identified gaps. Third, the workshop considers novel services and concepts that 5G networks would enhance the safety and performance of CCAM.
