Thanks to a cooperation with Vodafone an open mobile communications test field, the 5G Mobility Lab, which provides – besides dedicated WiFi – current and future mobile communication generations for connecting vehicle and infrastructure is installed. In addition, the world wide one-of-a-kind Galileo automotiveGATE allows development and testing of applications, systems and components already now, i. e. before a suffi cient number of satellites is available from the orbit.
Mobile communications test field
The 5G Mobility Lab provides one of the most modern mobile communications development and test environments for the connected and autonomous traffic of the future. In addition to predefined LTE standard configurations, specific, individual configurations can be provided.
The Aldenhoven Testing Center is covered by six terrestrial transmitting antennas, so-called pseudolites, with a simulated signal from the Galileo system. This means that application systems can already be developed and tested.
