The aim of the ICT4CART project is to design, implement and test a versatile ICT infrastructure in real-life conditions, which will enable the transition towards higher levels of automation. It focuses on four high-value use cases: Smart Parking & IoT services, dynamic adaptation of vehicle automation level based on infrastructure information, intersection crossing (urban) & lane merging (highway), and cross-border Interoperability. ICT4CART use cases have been carefully selected based on

Moreover, these use cases are serving one of the main targets of the project, which is to show that the proposed and implemented ICT infrastructure architecture is flexible, adaptable and can serve the needs of various automated driving use cases (safety, comfort, etc.) with different requirements, across test sites with different capabilities. The ICT4CART use cases can be global or 7 local, can be associated with network slices or not, can use Edge Clouds/Computing or not, can use different radio technologies and can be used everywhere (roaming aspect). They also consider mechanisms for cyber-security, authentication, integrity and privacy. For this purpose, four test sites are involved in ICT4CART, namely in Austria, in Germany, in Italy and a cross-border site at the Austrian-Italian borders. The main objective of WP8 is to evaluate the ICT4CART architecture through the proposed scenarios defined for each test site. Since ICT4CART deals with many different components, multiple use cases and novel architectural solutions, its actual evaluation becomes pivotal and inartistically multifaceted. WP8 will evaluate and validate each logical component of the proposed architecture (D3.1-D3.4) and its poten [...]
