The 5G networks are still being deployed in many countries creating new business opportunities. 5G networks allow us to include new features and deliver new levels of system capacity and efficiency such as higher speed connectivity, ultra low latency connectivity, improved security, distributed networks, virtualizednetworks and so on. They enable us to have new use cases and scenarios such as automated vehicles, smart city, eHealth, and so on. In this paper, 5G vertical use cases and large scale trials of transportation undertaken at the EU 5G-HEART project trial sites across Europe are introduced. Four representative transport use cases are validated in the 5G-HEART project. They are as follows: (1) Platooning that drives a group of vehicles together, (2) Autonomous driving that avoids collision and achieves safer driving and better traffic efficiency, (3) Remote driving support that allows an user or cloud software to control vehicles remotely, and (4) Vehicle data services that provides us with a better vehicle services byinterconnecting various third-party data to autonomous vehicles using5G networks. User requirements and KPIs are analyzed for 5G transportation use cases. The selected results of 5G-HEART transportation vertical trials are presented.
