5G-DRIVE workshop on V2X

The main objective of the workshop is to showcase 5G-DRIVE’s key outcomes, progresses and plans on the V2X topics half way through the project, including joint trialling activities with the Chinese twin project led by China Mobile. The workshop builds synergy with 5G-MOBIX, another 5G-PPP project, sharing lessons learned, insights, challenges and opportunities seen in the V2X sector in the 5G era.

The half-day workshop takes the opportunity of and co-locate with ITS Factory 2nd Development Forum to meet and share ideas with key stakeholders that come from a nice mixture of industry and research background, with a focus on engaging small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
