Kick-off Meeting 5G-CARMEN Project
Designing and developing a 5G digital corridor for the connected and automated mobility of the future on European roads. This is the goal of 5G-CARMEN, a project coordinated by Trento based Fondazione Bruno Kessler (FBK), which has just obtained a total funding of 18.5 million euros: 14.9 from the European Union, as part of the Horizon 2020 program for research and innovation, and the rest from project industrial partners.
The “Munich-Bologna corridor“, which covers 600 km of roads across three countries (Italy, Austria and Germany), is one of the most important corridors identified by the European Union for an initiative to improve the mobility of people and goods throughout Europe. As part of the 5G-CARMEN project, 5G technologies will be deployed along selected stretches of the motorway in the border regions.
