5GMETA project kicks off, intent on revolutionising data provision and services in autonomous mobility.

With data becoming an even more valuable and strategic asset in many domains, innovations that can leverage data to improve the deployment of applications are crucial. 5GMETA is one such project that intends to do just that for the automotive industry. This EU funded project, coordinated by Vicomtech will expand 5G network functions to provide the data for innovative services and successfully assist the deployment of connected and automated mobility applications.

Following its launch, 5GMETA begins work on creating a flexible telematics platform for pipelining car-captured and generated data to both traditional and new automotive industry players whilst ensuring key elements such as data privacy, security, interoperability and ownership are firmly in place. This open platform will consequently stimulate, facilitate and feed innovative products and services for the growing autonomous mobility industry.

LINKS is more and more increasing its knowledge in the Cooperative and Connected Mobility field. LINKS solutions span from On Board Units (not only for vehicles but also for bicycle) to Smart Road Side Unit with advanced AI and video processing modules. Moreover, LINKS is a pioneer in implementing edge service for connected vehicles and to protect Vulnerable Road Users. LINKS will participate with its skills in the Connected Vehicle field, especially in the data management at the edge of 5G networks and providing its smart Road Side and On-board units.

5GMETA has a consortium of 11 partners from four different countries, duration of three years and a total EU financial contribution of € 4,667,765. This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under grant agreement No.957360.
