IEEE 9th World Forum on Internet of Things
12–27 October 2023 // Aveiro, Portugal

5G for Connected and Automated Mobility (CAM)

Industry Forum Track

5G for Connected and Automated Mobility (CAM)


This track will take place on October 19th, all day.



5G for CAM was identified back in the 5G Action Plan of 2016, as a major priority. The focus was put on cross-border corridors, identified as the most challenging areas, aiming at the provision of advanced CAM services with service continuity namely across borders, in order to enable automated driving across Europe. This Industry Forum will provide the opportunity to highlight the main achievements and lessons learned thus far of the 5G for CAM cross-border projects, as well as the cooperative Business Models under consideration, and look into the challenges of deployment across Europe under CEF2-Digital 5G Corridors.
