Within the scope of 5G Barcelona

MWCapital, SEAT, Telefónica, Ficosa, ETRA and i2CAT promote a Connected Car pilot Project

Barcelona,  28 January 2019

  • The agreement will allow for the incorporation of SEAT, Ficosa and ETRA in 5G Barcelona, an initiative promoted by MWCapital, i2CAT and others that also involves Telefónica
  • Application of 5G technology to the project will facilitate testing of the connection among automobiles, urban infrastructure and other vehicles

This pilot project, which is jointly headed by SEAT and Telefónica, represents the first step towards totally cooperative autonomous driving. The features of 5G technology, such as low latency and edge computing (a technology that simplifies IoT device traffic and permits real-time local data analysis), will facilitate communication among the automobile, the infrastructure and other travelling vehicles.

The pilot project will cover both safety while driving and aspects related to “infotainment” through the downloading of high-definition entertainment contents.
