5G CAL Project Overview Presentation | 2021

    Presentation Published on 22 Apr 2021
5G Connected Automotive Logistics is based in the North East.

Through 5G we will demonstrate the key features for successful CAL deployment – the safe and secure operation and handover of the CAV from autonomous mode to remote manual operation (teleoperation) and vice versa, when a situation outside of the autonomous logic of the vehicle arises. This is considered a crucial demonstration of the capabilities of 5G and CAL, and critical for their operation in potential emergency situations, and, it is believed, will represent a world-first innovation.
