MWCapital, Seat, Telefónica, Ficosa, ETRA and i2CAT agree to jointly promote a Connected Car pilot Project

News

Mobile World Capital Barcelona, Seat, Telefónica, Ficosa, ETRA and i2CAT have signed a collaboration agreement to perform a pilot project for connected cars.

Info

The project lies within the scope of the 5G Barcelona consortium, which is an initiative intended to consolidate the city of Barcelona as Europe's benchmark 5G hub. It also involves the collaboration of other members of 5G Barcelona such as UPC and CTTC.

The signing of the agreement was attended by Carlos Grau, CEO of Mobile World Capital Barcelona, Christian Stein, General Director of Institutional Relations of Seat, Bruno Vilarasau, Director of Digital Services and Public Administrations of Telefónica, Joan Palacin, Director of the Advanced Communications Business Unit of Ficosa, Rafael Barnola, General Director of ETRA Bonal, and Josep Paradells, Director of the i2CAT Foundation.

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.
