Transport: Bulgaria, Greece, Serbia for automated mobility

Experimental 5G corridors, testing of driverless vehicles

27 June, 18:56
(ANSA) - BELGRADE, 27 GIU - Government authorities from Bulgaria, Greece and Serbia have agreed to jointly develop experimental 5G cross-border corridors that will allow the testing of driverless vehicles, the European Commission announced on June 26.

"This corridor will include the border crossings and key sections of the main roads", a statement from the European Commission noted. A letter of intent to work on the field of connected and automated driving and on the Thessaloniki-Sofia-Belgrade corridor was signed at the Digital Assembly 2018 in Sofia and the "agreement builds on a number of previous ones between a number of European countries, and underlines that a pan-European network of 5G corridors is now emerging," the European Commission stated.

In 2017, 27 Member States agreed to develop large scale testing of connected and automated mobility on European highway cross-border corridors.

The letter of intent between the three countries specifies that "the corridor will provide a technologically neutral hub for industry, research centers, academia and any other stakeholders for testing and evaluating innovative mobility technologies." (ANSA).
