5G-Blueprint Final Showcase

21 November 2023 @ 9:30 - 15:30 CET

The consortium of the Horizon 2020 Research & Innovation project 5G-Blueprint invites you to the 5G-Blueprint Final Showcase event, which aims to present the technical results of the almost completed project.

The event is free of charge, but registration is mandatory due to limited space. Please register here.

5G-Blueprint: teleoperation in transport and logistics

Final showcase event

In the European Research and Innovation project 5G-Blueprint, 26 public-private partners are exploring the use of 5G communication technology to remotely control vehicles and ships for transport and logistics. Reliable 5G connectivity can improve road safety and the efficiency of logistics processes. Moreover, the results of the 5G-Blueprint, when combined with other technologies and functionalities, can be seen as an important ‘missing technical piece’ of the puzzle for the possible future deployment of more and more autonomous driving and shipping. In the future, it will be possible to divide a fully travelled route into sections where a human remotely controls the vehicle or vessel via teleoperation, and sections where the vehicle or vessel can safely drive or sail autonomously (empty motorway at night, clear waterway, etc.). In the final phase of the project, the ‘teleoperation technology’ was intensively tested in three different locations: Vlissingen, Antwerp and at the Belgian-Dutch border crossing between Sas van Gent and Zelzate.

The 5G-Blueprint partners are pleased to share the results of this research with you at a final showcase event.
