Sharing, inspiring, planning: AUTOPILOT experience at the IoT Week 2019 can be summarised like this. The event has been a great occasion to interact with other LSP projects, raise awareness among the visitors and explore potential cross-sector collaboration opportunities in the framework of Smart Cities.
AUTOPILOT carried out several activities during the week. A session and panel discussion on ‘5G for connected vehicles’ was presented by Ovidiu Vermesan (SINTEF) and Martin Bauer (NECLab), including a focus on AUTOPILOT’s contribution to define the practical applications of IoT for 5G. The presentation introduced the concept of a digital twin, showing how it can help in understanding the current situation, predict future ones and recommend actions, extending the view of an autonomously driving car beyond the range of its own sensors.
AUTOPILOT participated to the LSP Activity Group 01 Workshop, sharing its exploitation plan with the other LSPs. Partners explored the possibility of a cross-sector exploitation, for instance developing a set of services in the Smart Cities context from mobility (in-vehicle) data, etc.
