5GAA to Participate to ITS WORLD CONGRESS 2021 in Hamburg, Germany

The 5G Automotive Association (5GAA) is very pleased to participate in the European edition of the ITS World Congress and to be part, alongside its members, of the discussion with global stakeholders in the field of connected mobility. This year, the event will take place from 11 to 15 October 2021 in Hamburg and will allow to “Experience Future Mobility Now.”

ITS World Congress is the world’s largest and most prominent event focused on smart mobility and the digitalisation of transports. It aims to underline the importance of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) and raise awareness of smart mobility solutions among policy makers, experts, and the general public. It will be a great opportunity to present the latest developments in ITS and enjoy networking opportunities.

Smart mobility and Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) are crucial constitutive elements of 5GAA, as the association helps shape technological advances in the field. Cooperative Intelligent Transportation Systems (C-ITS) are the technologies associated with connected vehicles. These technologies, enabled by wireless transactions (V2X), would have a crucial impact on road safety and traffic efficiency. 5GAA supports the idea that 5G will be the ultimate platform to enable C-ITS and the provision of V2X.

5GAA and its members will be involved in different activities.

  • During the event, we will have a booth where both industry and media visitors can learn more about 5GAA’s action to foster connected mobility.
  • On 13 October, from 2 to 3 pm CEST we will host a press tour, moderated by Roger Lanctot, which will focus on concrete examples of C-V2X solutions as shown by 5GAA member demonstrations and booths. The members featured in the tour will be Qualcomm, Bosch, Telefonica, Deutsche Telekom & Continental, Novatel/Hexagon, Fraunhofer Institute FOKUS.
  • 5GAA will also organise a workshop on “Connecting to Future Mobility”, from 9 am to 12 pm CEST, in Room X10 of the Congress Centre, followed by a networking lunch. The session will be a great opportunity to discuss the acceleration of C-V2X deployment and future-proof investments in digital infrastructure, compare the specifics between road corridors and urban areas, and to exchange about digital mobility services at large.
    The discussion will outline the cooperation models enabling the deployment and use of 5G infrastructures for connected and automated mobility. The workshop aims at bridging representatives of national, regional & local road authorities and operators together with industry representatives.Register here to attend the event.
