FELICIA: Feasibility study of latency-critical connected vehicle applications in MONROE

Next generation connected vehicles and cooperative intelligent transport systems (C-ITS) have great potential to make road traffic safer, more efficient and greener, but also place extensive demands on the communication systems. The mobile networks need to handle time-critical applications combined with uploads of large data volumes from moving vehicles.

 

The FELICIA -project is a measurement study using the MONROE mobile broadband measurement testbed with 150 mobile nodes (on buses in Värmland and Turin, trucks in Tuscany, trains in Norway).

 

The objective of the FELICIA-project is to identify possibilities and limitations in the existing mobile networks (4G/LTE) for supporting new connected vehicle applications. The project also study the possible gain of using multiple accesses and multi-path transport in the end-points for these type of applications, separating time-critical and bulk data into different paths.

MONROE (Measuring Mobile Broadband Networks in Europe) is a European Horizon 2020 project and the FELICIA project is one of the 15 projects selected in the Second MONROE Open Call for Experiments and Extensions.
