This paper is a review of preliminary results and progress of the EU-5G-DRIVE and corresponding twinningproject in China. The project is funded under the EU Horizon-2020, from where 5G development and especiallyenhanced Mobile Broadband and V2X technologies are studied by various organizations around EU. The paperfocuses on the first field tests of the project, which has been done in Espoo Finland in May 2019. The field tests are planned so that there are two use case test scenarios, where hybrid communication technologies (ETSI ITS-G5 and LTE/5G) are experimented together with automated car. The tests will produce more information about 5G development and especially focus on interoperability issues between EU and China, where 5G-DRIVE’s counter project is executed in parallel. The preliminary results indicate that the current network is not ready for having real collaborative driving and especially, steps towards C-V2X is not straightforward as thought in headlines.
