This week, on 7th and 8th of May 2019, the 5GCroCo team has celebrated a face-to-face meeting, hosted by HTW Saar in Saarbrücken (Germany). The team has worked together on the specification of the 5G trials for cross-border connected and automated mobility planned for execution in Q1 2020. In addition, the team has taken the opportunity to visit the cross-border corridor connecting the cities of Metz-Merzig-Luxembourg, where the large scale trials of 5GCroCo will be conducted. More details on the trials will be available very soon, since the first public deliverable of 5GCroCo, with a detailed description of the trials that will be executed, is planned for this summer 2019.
