5G for Connected and Automated Road Mobility in the European UnioN (5G-CARMEN)


2018 - 2021


This project, funded by the European Commission, has progressed with relevant impact on research community, being declared the most active project on autonomous driving by the European Commission. 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.

This project has received funding from the European Horizon 2020 Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement n° 825012 – 5G CARMEN
