Operators’ interest in exploring the possibilities of 5G in the mobility sector It’s not new, not even recent. In 2019, for example, we were already able to get into a connected vehicle that SEAT and Telefónica were testing. And just a year ago, Vodafone Germany surprised us with the launch of a specific 5G rate for the car that premiered on board a BMW.

The MásMóvil Group has signed a collaboration agreement with Indra to create a test site at Indra’s facilities in the Community of Madrid. This test space will be equipped with the latest generation 5G technology and will have the necessary hardware and software to deploy and validate new smart mobility solutions and services that can later be transferred to a real environment.

Both companies assure that this new 5G environment will also be a space for open collaboration with startups, SMEs and universities facilitating the development of R&D&i activities, proofs of concept, demonstrators and pilots that make it possible to take advantage of the potential of the 5G network for more connected mobility.

They assure that, among all this, there will be solutions for reinforce road safety thanks to Edge Computing and improve video surveillance at stations or inside buses. Work will also be done on wireless communications to facilitate new railway signaling services, cargo inspection or monitoring of rolling stock.

In this new test space, digitization and 5G will be applied to improve the user experience and provide entertainment services and Wi-Fi connectivity

In addition, it is planned to create a digital twin in which data is updated in real time to plan maintenance tasks. Likewise, they promise to explore the advantages of digitization and 5G to improve the user experience and provide entertainment services and Wi-Fi connectivity. This also includes the online purchase of transport tickets or validation in real time with biometric technology.
