Bulgaria, Greece and Serbia agreed on a 5G cross-border corridor
The Digital Assembly 2018 that took place in Sofia, Bulgaria on the 25-26 June was an excellent opportunity to join efforts towards the future of connected automated driving in Europe.
During the event, that was co-organised by the European Commission and the Bulgarian Presidency of the Council of the European Union, another three EU countries signed an agreement to develop an experimental 5G cross-border corridor.
The Letter of Intent that was signed by Bulgaria, Greece and Serbia represents another important milestone in the extension of 5G testing corridors for connected and automated mobility. They agreed to work together on the Thessaloniki – Sofia – Belgrade corridor, which will allow tests to be conducted with driverless vehicles over hundreds of kilometres of motorways.
This ratification is part of a number of previous agreements between several European countries; such as France, Germany, Norway, Finland, Sweden, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Belgium and Spain, and consolidates Europe as the biggest experiment area developing the 5G technology.
