The two-year project through Sheridan’s Centre for Mobile Innovation will study the potential of integrating navigation, diagnostics and infotainment systems into autonomous vehicles over 5G wireless networks.

Specific applications include:

  • Autonomous public transportation systems
  • Driverless taxis
  • Autonomous delivery systems
  • Assisted driving for seniors and people with disabilities

“5G innovation is opening up a whole new world of opportunities for Canadians and businesses and our partnership with Sheridan continues to build on our strong partner ecosystem,” said Jorge Fernandes, Rogers’ CTO.

“Together, we have an opportunity to lead autonomous vehicle research and innovation in Canada that will make meaningful economic impacts, while also providing our students relevant problem-solving skills and expertise as they proceed on their career path,” added Andrea England, Vice Provost, Research at Sheridan.
