Fraunhofer FOKUS


The 5G Playground automotive deployment concentrate on the limit connectivity use cases, specifically towards areas of high interest for the automotive industry such as private grounds and indoor parking places.

The automotive testbed island is enabling remote communication from and to the cars for :

  • Multimedia delivery to the car
  • Data acquisition aggregation and transmission (video included)
  • Low delay critical information (e.g. for remote steering)

The automotive island is planned to be deployed in the underground parking place of Fraunhofer FOKUS building in April 2019 and it would include:

  • Coverage of the underground parking lot with 5G NSA base stations
  • A single edge computing node connecting the base stations
  • A multi-slice core network optimized for video data acquisition and dissemination as well as for low delay, ultra-reliable communication
