Having recently joined the 5GAA  (5G Automotive Association), LINKS Foundation will showcase, at the 5GAA Turin meeting that will take place on 14th November, some C-ITS use-cases exploiting homemade technological solutions. Their demos, implemented with other partners from the Turin Smart-Road Programme, will focus on the protection of Vulnerable Road Users (VRUs) using 5G communications and Edge computing.

LINKS will present a prototype of connected bicycle, intended to inform the rider about possible collisions with the surrounding vehicles. The bicycle mounts LINKS battery-powered On Board Unit, compliant with ETSI C-ITS specifications.  LINKS also contributed to the development of a system to warn pedestrians crossing a road, about approaching vehicles. Both the VRU use-cases leverage the 5G network flexibility and computing capabilities for delivering a low-latency anti-collision solution.

LINKS has been active for over 10 years in the domain of Cooperative, Connected, Automated and Autonomous Mobility (CCAM): their prototypes span from On Board Unit to Road Side Unit, including an ITS stack and several Edge applications for automotive and more.

Stay tuned on our social channels: we will show some pictures of the event and of our connected bicycle prototype!
