5G-ROUTES is a 5G-PPP Phase 3 project whose aim is to validate through robust evidence the latest 5G features and 3GPP specifications (R.16 & R.17) of CAM under realistic conditions. In particular, it will conduct advanced large-scale field trials of most representative CAM applications to demonstrate seamless functionality across a prominent 5G cross-border corridor (Via Baltica-North), traversing Latvia, Estonia and Finland. This will help to boost confidence and accelerate the deployment of 5G-based interoperable CAM ecosystems and services throughout Europe. It also aims at validating 5G as a true enabler of innovative CAM services that cannot be realised by today’s technology. Specifically, 5G-ROUTES will provide: (a) validation of >150 network, business and service-level KPIs for 13 diverse CAM use cases that require 5G performance capabilities, covering several V2X scenarios in automated cooperative, awareness and sensing driving. 5G-ROUTES also focuses on uninterrupted infotainment passenger services on the go and multimodal services in the context of complete connectivity-enabled ecosystems around passengers and cargo over 3 different modes of transport (vehicles, rails and maritime); (b) innovative AIbased technological enablers for facilitating the execution of the field trials. Several scenarios will be considered for each use case covering cross-border, cross-telecom operators, cross telco-vendors, integrated cross terrestrial-satellite and cross-transport-mode settings. These will be incrementally validated, starting from lab trials, followed by localised large-scale trials at strategic cross-border locations (Valga city, Tallinn & Gulf of Finland) and finally in larger-scale trials covering significant portions of transport routes along the selected corridor. Our 22-partner consortium is driven by industry heavyweights and renowned organisations the majority of which participate in 30 out of 63 5G-PPP projects and in several 5G-PPP Working Groups.
