The new 5G mobile communications standard promises real-time capability, data transmission security and increased bandwidth, making it one of the basic technologies for machine learning and artificial intelligence in wireless scenarios. Within the 5G Lab in Braunschweig and Wolfsburg, this technology is to be researched and the meaningful expansion as well as application cases in the sense of a model region reproducibly worked out. For this purpose, an open laboratory is to be set up, in which the necessary infrastructure will be provided on a large scale.
The 5G laboratory is divided into two modules: The Braunschweig module focuses on research, the Wolfsburg module on application and operation. The ifak is involved in the application “Optimized Rescue Mobility with Infrastructure Support”. The aim of the subproject is the development, implementation and testing of the cooperative traffic system reaction to special duty vehicles for the optimization of rescue mobility as well as to public transport vehicles for optimized public transport acceleration. Developed approaches with 5G (Release 15, 5G Phase 1) and C-V2X (Release 16, 5G Phase 2) will be tested and investigated. The necessary information about the rescue vehicles will be sent via 5G and V2X communication via WAVE (Automotive WLAN).
The ifak will transfer experience from the SIRENE research project and set up an optimized routing system for priority vehicles in the Braunschweig-Wolfsburg region. This can inform the driver during the journey, but is above all necessary to support traffic light priority. Subcontracting in connection with this also takes place.
