Autonomous-vehicle 5G development support moves ahead at Millbrook Proving Ground in the U.K.

Millbrook Proving Ground in the U.K. has officially launched the AutoAir consortium's 5G cellular testing infrastructure for autonomous vehicle (AV) development. The new facility at Millbrook provides AV developers access to a low-latency, wide-area wireless infrastructure billed to work seamlessly across the entire sprawling test facility 50 miles (80 km) north of London.

According to the facility, the 5G capability “is crucial for the validation and testing of SAE Level 3 to Level 5 autonomous vehicles, which require high-speed real-time connectivity to compare real-world outcomes with decision-making simulation.”
