The 5GMobix Project aims to validate 5G technologies in the context of CCAM (Cooperative, Connected and Automated Mobility) use cases in seven test locations in Europe and Asia, including a Portugal-Spain corridor, between the cities of Porto and Vigo.



In recent years, developments in the areas of communications networks such as 5G stand out, alongside advances in autonomous driving technology. These developments are paving the way for a future of cooperative, connected and autonomous mobility (CCAM). The European Union intends to be at the forefront of this new paradigm of innovation, contributing to technological development, preparing legislation and identifying business models. The 5GMobix Project, funded by Horizon 2020, is a step in this direction that involves 58 partners from several European and Asian countries.


The project aims to produce knowledge regarding the application of 5G technologies in a real CCAM context, enhancing business exploration models and supporting regulatory efforts in the coming years. 




The consortium's vision is to pave the way for a sustainable and profitable deployment of 5G in Europe and significantly advance the applicability of connected and automated driving functions, with a view to accelerating the process of adoption of automated vehicles.


The I&I, UMC and HTIR departments coordinated and evaluated the acceptance of technologies by users at all test sites and, in parallel, took over the technical coordination of the Portuguese-Spanish corridor.





Over the past few years, there have been several efforts and activities aimed at developing and testing approaches that guarantee the continuity of 5G connectivity, which supports CAM technologies, even when crossing borders between countries.
