5GROWTH: Safety Critical Communications

Home » 5GROWTH: Safety Critical Communications

Overview of the 5GROWTH use case on Safety Critical Communications for transportation

The use case will demonstrate the use of 5G communications for the railway safety critical communications, particularly at Level Crossing systems, supporting data information exchange between the level crossing train detector activation points and the LX (Level Crossing) controller. Since this type of communication is considered critical, the most relevant issues are related to reliability, availability and low latency in order to assure the proper behavior of the system according to railway signaling safety communications standards EN50159-2 class 7.
