New research projects in logistics and automotive area
ERTICO-ITS Europe recently announced the start of two new European-funded projects: 5G-LOGINNOV and 5G-META. Both the projects will help benefit the European community of shippers, logistics service providers, mobility infrastructure providers, cities, authorities, and the automotive industry.
5G – LOGINNOV project will enhance activities and the upkeep of ports and logistics hubs thanks to cutting edge 5G enabled-services. The project will bring together 15 partners to evaluate and showcase the added value of 5G technology for logistics and port operations in three Labs (Athens (GR), Hamburg (GE) and Luka Koper (SV) ), and will support the adoption and take-up of 5G enabled next generation operation systems of ports and logistics hubs in Europe and beyond.
“5G-LOGINNOV will in fact pave the way towards efficient freight and traffic operations at ports and logistics hubs by using new innovative concepts, applications and devices supported by 5G technologies, Internet of Things (IoT), data analytics, next generation traffic management, CCAM (Cooperative, Connected and Automated Mobility) and the 5G logistics corridor” said ERTICO Senior Manager Eusebiu Catana.
5G-META project will evaluate and showcase the added value of 5G technology for connected and automated mobility applications. Along with partner Vicomtech, ERTICO will contribute with 10 other partners in empowering the automotive ecosystem from industry players to new entrants, such as SMEs and high-tech start-ups, granting access to interoperable car-captured data according to data licenses.
“The access to data coming from relevant geographical regions will be a catalyst for the generation of new opportunities and business models from valuable services. In these cases, data liability and billing will rely on the accountability dashboard of dataflow subscription and volume consumption”, said ERTICO’s I&D Director Johanna Tzanidaki.
