„This project is a great example of the importance of good collaboration in an ever more complex environment. It united cutting-edge tech with a focal societal problem statement. And all of that with well-aligned and trustworthy project partners at BMW.”
Our Final Result
Our Final Result
Identification of further challenges to achieve smooth cross-border cooperative driving. The basis for more targeted research funding in the future has been created.
Leveraging 5G for Autonomous Driving
- Precise GNSS system that tracks the car with an accuracy of a few centimeters
- Deployed on mobile edge computing (MEC) unit
- International and intercorporational collaboration
Motius played a crucial role in the 5G Carmen EU project, showcasing the power of 5G technology in enabling cooperative driving applications where vehicles communicate to optimize traffic flow. We identified further challenges to achieve smooth cross-border cooperative driving and created the basis for more future targeted research funding.

What are the implications of 5G for autonomous driving? This was the overarching question of our joint Cooperative Lane Management (CLM) project with members of the 5G Carmen consortium.
We provided the onboard software and maneuvering algorithms for Cooperative Lane Management (CLM).
All About 5G Carmen EU Project X BMW
Leveraging 5G for the EU
The 5G-Carmen project aims at implementing connected, automated road transport on the Bologna-Munich corridor (600 km, across three EU countries). In the project, 5G mobile networks were used to connect vehicles to each other and to the infrastructure, supporting safer, greener, and more intelligent mobility. In this context, 5G Carmen provides a platform for vehicles to exchange speed, position, intended trajectories, and maneuvers, enabling cooperative, connected, and automated mobility.
Tackling the Challenge in a Four-Step Process
No matter how well-defined your project idea is, we can work it out together. We can start with an existing problem, an existing product that you want to improve, or just some rough ideas and requirements. Based on your needs, we identify new technologies that create the biggest impact for you and your users.
Quickly and reliably prove that the solution is technically possible before investing too much money. We deliver technical proof of concepts in no time. The best way to create products people love is through rapid prototyping. We focus on fast ideations and customer-centricity.
To test our software working in a real-life scenario met up with BMW. On each side of the border, there is an MEC deployed that takes over the maneuvering depending on which side of the border the maneuver takes place. The driver or user will not notice the handover of responsibilities.
Analysis and Iteration
During the test run at the Austrian-German border, we recorded data from the maneuvers to analyze the advantages of 5G over 4G. This way we could identify additional challenges to achieve smooth cross-border cooperative driving and give suggestions for further optimization for future research projects.
