Seat and 5G Barcelona consortium promote a Connected Car pilot project
Seat, Telefónica, Ficosa, Etra and 5G Barcelona consortium have signed a collaboration agreement to perform a pilot project for connected cars.
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.
