Goal

The goal of 5G-TOURS is to get the European 5G Vision of “5G empowering vertical industries” [5GPPP16] closer to commercial deployment with highly innovative use cases involving cross-industry partnerships.

Motivation

5G-TOURS aims to demonstrate the ability of 5G to support multiple vertical use cases concurrently on the same infrastructure.

Vision

5G-TOURS vision is to improve the life in the city for the citizens and tourists, making cities more attractive to visit, more efficient in terms of mobility and safer for everybody.

Main Themes

The touristic city: The visitors of museums and outdoor attractions are provided with 5G-based applications to enhance their experience while visiting the city. This includes VR/AR applications to complement the physical visit with additional content, involving interactive tactile communications. The experience of the visitors is also enhanced with robot-assisted services, telepresence to allow for remote visits, as well as live events enabled by mobile communications such as multi-party concerts.
The mobility-efficient city: Mobility to reach and move inside the city is made more efficient and comfortable. This involves smarter cities, gathering information about the city and using it to improve navigation systems as well as parking. Traveling is also made more enjoyable, providing AR/VR services to passengers, and airports become logistically more efficient by relying on 5G for their operation.
The safe city: 5G technology greatly improves the safety in the city by providing means to better assist health-related care in all the phases of an incident, ranging from the health monitoring for prevention and early detection, to diagnosis and intervention at the ambulance, and surgery at the wireless operation room in the hospital. Also, 5G enables monitoring and remote assistance to tourists from their home country.
