Options for viable connectivity to vehicles for road and rail are coming, with innovators claiming Edge for low latency applications – typically infotainment but others are emerging. Air and Sea Ports are becoming an increasingly vocal potential markets for new approaches to wireless service delivery and automation. Can logistics provide a useful application level glue that shapes the market or are other forces like autonomous electric vehicles the shaping force?

Application mobility with MEC
MEC standards today focus on how to get an application running at the edge, and how to allow phones to communicate it. Mobility is only just starting to be addressed, especially how to transfer stateful applications from one edge node to another without affecting latency. This talk will discuss the technical options and show some initial results from research into this area.

The West Midlands – pioneering 5G transport innovation
West Midlands 5G has recently supported a number of 5G trials in the transport sector. These included detecting kerbside availability, utilising 5G cctv as an enabler for passenger safety on trams and trialling two different means using 5G to provide live traffic data from regional roads. West Midlands 5G will share the findings of these demonstrations and will outline their next phase of projects from the recently run 5G-Enabled Road and Rail Transport Trials competition supporting 7 further innovation projects that will develop new 5G transport related services or products.
