IoT has contributed tremendously to advancing the Connected and Automated Mobility (CAM) goals of safety, traffic efficiency and comfort. 5G, with its promise of a highly flexible architecture and extended reach of communication, can amplify IoT-CAM use cases in unprecedented ways. There are boundless economic benefits of using the 5G network slicing model for IoT service provision. Fully harnessing the potential of IoT and big data solutions powered by 5G requires a collaborative approach towards a global market vision. In this symposium, experts from Europe, Asia and the Americas will present perspectives on how 5G and IoT can bridge the gap to fully automated and on-demand mobility.

The discussion will centre on:

1) technological trends and research and innovation strategies;

2) new business models for automated mobility, particularly data sharing along a large value chain involving diverse stakeholders supplying solutions;

3) policy and regulation approaches across the three continents.
