Verticals Cartography

In 2035, when 5G’s full economic benefit should be realised across the globe, a broad range of industries – from transportation to entertainment and education, and everything in between – could produce up to 10.7 trillion euros worth of goods and services enabled by 5G mobile technology. Meanwhile, Europe’s 5G Public Private Partnership (5G PPP) is developing new applications across a diverse set of verticals spanning proofs of concept, prototypes, demonstrations, trials, and pilots in order to validate the functionalities defined for 5G by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) – Enhanced Mobile Broadband, Massive Machine Type Communications, and Ultra Reliable Low Latency Communications – so consumers and sector end users can really know what 5G is all about.

How to use the 5G PPP verticals cartography:

The experiments are taking place in Europe between 2018 and 2020. You can view the experiments by sector, country, and ITU functionality by clicking on the boxes on the right. New country locations and tests will be added in the future. Meanwhile, enjoy our 5G PPP showcase.

Transport & Logistics

5G-PICTURE: Railway Test-bed

This 5G-railway test-bed will be deployed across three lines of FGCs network, each one addressing different transportation needs:

  • Deployment of massive MIMO for density.
  • Coordination of small cell using the DA-RAN to enhancing mobility.
  • Railway services provisioning over common infrastructure.

In terms of 5G functionalities, this 5G-PICTURE demonstration investigates:


5GCAR: Vulnerable Road User Protection

A car and a VRU (modelled as a small chassis with wheels carrying all the needed equipment) are each equipped with a portable hardware prototype continuously transmitting 5G positioning signals to the network infrastructure, which is used for accurately positioning the car.


5GCAR - Cooperative Perception for Manoeuvres of Connected Vehicles

Cooperative perception is enabled by a combination of V2V and V2I communication, using both 5G and 4G simultaneously. 5G provides low-latency V2V communication based on camera streaming overlaid with sensor information.

In terms of 5G functionalities, 5GCAR investigates:

  • High throughput and low latency sidelink communication. 

Location: Lure (France)

Expected date: Q2-2019


5GCAR: Lane Merge for Automotive

The lane merge demonstration deals with the automated creation of gaps for cars entering a lane, using cellular communication and a centralised lane merge coordination. In the planned setup, a fixed camera installation near the intersection is used to also detect vehicles that are not connected, and thus cannot receive instructions or communicate their location and intentions.

In terms of 5G functionalities, 5GCAR investigates:
