Millimeter-wave Networking and Sensing for Beyond 5G, with Joerg Widmer as Principal Investigator, is the base of this project funded by European Union (H2020-MSCA-ITN-2019 / Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks), from November, 2019 to October, 2023 (Madrid Time)
Member companies of the 5TONIC, one of the first 5G use cases co-creation laboratories based in Madrid, took center stage at last week’s European Conference on Networks and Communications (EuCNC 2019) in Valencia, delivering demonstrations, workshops and presentations that highlighted the lab’s work advancing 5G technology – especially within vertical market applications.
Handling robots remotely is already a reality that progressively will facilitate and change factory work as we know it.
The 5TONIC co-creation and research laboratory near Madrid, Spain, has collaborated with Autonomously Guided Vehicle (AGV) specialist ASTI Mobile Robotics to launch a series of tests that demonstrate 5G technology could be used to drive AGVs around large factories without the need for pre-set routes or tracks to follow.
Domenico Giustiniano, a Research Assistant Professor at IMDEA Networks, is co-chairing the Workshop FLYNET: Micro and Nano Aerial Vehicle Networks for Civilian Use, to be hosted at ETH Zürich, on November 3-5, 2014. This event presents a program of distinguished invited speakers, experts in key domains of micro and nano aerial vehicle (MAV and NAV) systems.
The significant increase of traffic accidents on European roads as a result of the growing demand and concentration of vehicles and drivers over the last decade, has driven .EU countries to take action in the shape of political and financial cooperation. The European Commission (EC) and the automotive industry have committed themselves to halving loss of life by 2010. In this context, and since 2008, IMDEA-Networks, in collaboration with NETCOM Research Group from University Carlos III of Madrid, have been actively involved in the development of GeoNet (Geoaddressing and Georouting for vehicular communications) project. This project concluded on January 29th at INRIA’s premises in Paris, with the celebration of a Final Workshop, which consisted of a joint public presentation of its achievements.
GeoNet concluded its activity with its Final Workshop that took place 29 January 2010 in INRIA’s premises in Paris, France. IPv6 GeoNetworking was presented together with its link with the related ITS development in CAR 2 CAR Communication Consortium, CVIS implementation and ETSI TC ITS standardization. Moreover the functionalities of IPv6 GeoNetworking was shown in a real system including 3 cars, 2 road-side units and a control center. A (very simple) enhanced driver awareness application was demonstrated and numerous attendees could enjoy a ride to see the achievement.
Cars will be capable of exchanging information between one another and the surrounding area thanks to Internet and Wi-Fi connections, preventing accidents and traffic jams. However, the first vehicles of this kind will not arrive until 2015.
