Overview of 5G-HEART:  Autonomous and Assisted driving

This use case focuses on connected automated vehicles and services supporting autonomous driving and on-board driving assistance systems, revolving around:  

  • Smart junctions: network-assisted safety information provided to vehicles to prevent traffic accidents and assist cooperative automated driving functions when the vehicles pass through an intersection.
  • QoS for advanced driving: dynamic selection of the best driving mode (i.e., society of automotive engineers (SAE) level of automation) during a given trip depending on all the relevant factors e.g., the time-varying operating conditions, such as network load, road traffic and traffic diversions, manufacturer design decisions and regulation in-force.
  • Human tachograph: assessment of the driver’s physiological status and delivery of related trigger messages to on-board or online driving assistance systems based on live and history data measured with wearable sensor devices.
