VITAL-5G participated in EuCNC & 6G Summit 2024, 3-6 June 2024, Antwerp, Belgium

On Wednesday June 5th  2024,  Vincent Charpentier has presented VITAL-5G Project at a Special Session Number 5, titled: Towards new connected mobility, at the EuCNC and 6G Summit 2024. 

Mobility has been and will continue as a fundamental necessity of our society. The difference is that the emerging trends in mobility are accompanied with notions of efficiency, security, inclusivity, and limited pollution. This New Connected Mobility aims to leverage the plethora of emerging digital technologies and relies on connectivity of all the involved elements. The technologies and interconnectivity enable enhanced situational awareness and optimized exchange of information leading to efficient, safer, relaxed, and more intelligent mobility. The digital technologies are driven by advances in hardware components including computation and communication power and the networks are largely handled by software in a virtualized architecture. 5G has made a first attempt at integrating various emerging elements of the new connected mobility paradigm. Driven by novel use cases including human centric applications, research and innovation continues towards finding seamless integration of communication and mobility components. The research in new connected mobility lies within the ambit of Communication and Vehicular Technology societies of IEEE. The IEEE Benelux VT/ COM chapter aims to foster research and promote interaction between academia and industries in the region. This Chapter is driven by about twelve Executive Committee members, representing different Universities, Research Institutes, and Industries.
