Working on digital advance technologies to offer knowledge, expertise and solutions
As new technologies are disrupting the way we drive, technology is enabling a future with increased safety, energy efficiency, improved air quality, and reduced congestion on our roads while enhancing user comfort and convenience.
Europe aims to achieve this vision while serving the needs of citizens and the economy. i2CAT is a creative and innovative player committed to contributing to this goal in several dimensions: safer roads with zero fatalities, greener roads with zero-emission, inclusive mobility for all, and strengthened competitiveness of European industries. All of this will be achieved through several operations:
Among the mobility activities that the i2CAT Foundation is working on, there are two essential examples.
i2CAT is the technical manager of 5GMed, an H2020 project that brings together key stakeholders of the “Barcelona – Perpignan” cross-border section of the Mediterranean corridor including MNOs, road and rail operators and neutral hosts, complemented with innovative SMEs developing AI functions, and selected R&D centers with a proven track record in 5G R&I. 5GMed ambitions to become the lighthouse project for CCAM and FRMCS deployment in cross-border scenarios that can be replicated across Europe and trigger further investments through the CEF2 program.
The center also acts as the technical manager of the EU-funded CARAMEL project. Car safety has come a long way. From the first padded dashboard to seat belts and from rear-view cameras to active safety measures such as autonomous emergency braking (AEB), technological advances are picking up speed. Nowadays, cars are becoming smarter and “greener” through connectivity and artificial intelligence, and cybersecurity is emerging as a new concern able to stop such huge potential for more sustainable safer roads with zero fatality. CARAMEL is developing cybersecurity solutions for the new generation of cars: autonomous cars, 5G connected vehicles, and electromobility. The project applies a proactive method based on artificial intelligence and machine learning techniques to mitigate cybersecurity-originated safety risks on roads. Considering the entire supply chain, CARAMEL aims to introduce innovative anti-hacking intrusion detection/prevention systems for the European automotive industry.
