5G-LOGINNOV’s vision is to optimise freight and traffic operations at ports and logistics hubs by using new innovative concepts, applications and devices supported by 5G technologies, Internet of Things (IoT), data analytics, next generation traffic management, Cooperative, Connected and Automated Mobility (CCAM) and the 5G logistics corridor.
5G-LOGINNOV applies this potential to ports, freight, and the logistic supply chain. Through the creation, testing and deployment of services, 5G-LOGINNOV will ensure port areas and city-ports can handle upcoming and future capacity, cope with traffic congestion and environmental challenges.
5G-LOGINNOV comprises of a range of port-driven technological and societal innovations, tailored to realise the objectives including automation for ports; generation of data on floating trucks and emission; automated truck platooning and involvement of high-tech SMEs. The innovations will be implemented and tested in real operating conditions in three Living Lab environments, associated with the three 5G-LOGINNOV ports, namely Athens (Greece), Hamburg (Germany) and Luka Koper (Slovenia) Living Labs.
5G-LOGINNOV is part of the European Commission’s 5G-Public Private Partnership (5G-PPP), which is a joint initiative between the European Commission and European ICT industry (ICT manufacturers, telecommunications operators, service providers, SMEs and researcher Institutions).
5G-LOGINNOV is a three-year project to be completed in September 2023. The project will receive nearly 6 million euros from the European Commission; the Luka Koper activities are co-financed by 70%.
