Slovenian provider of telecommunications services Telekom Slovenije is the only telecom operator participating in the European project 5G-IANA (Intelligent Automotive Network Applications).
The 5G Public Private Partnership (5G PPP) is the 5G collaborative research program that is organized as part of the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 program – The European Union Program for Research and Innovation.
It is aimed at fostering industry-driven research, monitored by business-related, technological performance, and societal KPIs. The 5G PPP will deliver solutions, architectures, technologies, and standards for ubiquitous next-generation communication infrastructure over the coming decade.
According to local media reports, in the test environment of Telekom Slovenije's 5G network, several use cases will be presented, which will include various scenarios, namely remote control of the vehicle, coordination of autonomous driving maneuvers, virtual bus trip, provision of Augmented Reality content for vehicles, the flow of car parks, detection of high-risk road points, monitoring of the network condition and monitoring of the situation in accidents in cross-border road tunnels.
These applications will provide a starting point for interested companies, telecommunications operators, and research organizations to develop, test, and implement their own solutions.
