5G-CAR is an industrial research project approved on the “Call for strategic industrial research projects aimed at the priority areas of the smart specialization strategy” (DGR 986/2018) within the POR-FESR EMILIA ROMAGNA 2014-2020, Axis 1 – Research and innovation, Action 1.2.2.
Realization of a 5.9 GHz radio interconnection system according to the 802.11p protocol and according to the 5G modalities. The radio interconnection system, including multiple antennas (MIMO) and interface media, will be able to exchange data at very high speeds, from 1 to 5 GB / s, between vehicles and between vehicles and infrastructures on the route. In the fractions of a second in which the antennas of vehicles and fixed nodes will be within reach it will be possible to exchange a mass of data so far inaccessible.
The activity involves the design (in collaboration with the MISTER SMART INNOVATION consortium) and the development of a technological process for the manufacture of prototypes of optimized 5G antennas on fused silica substrates.
