ABSTRACT: Controlling groups of autonomous vehicles from a wireless network requires low delays, high reliability, and computing power close-by. Even though 5G cellular networks will provide these ingredients, high delays or connectivity interruptions may still lead to catastrophic consequences. We will present a novel solution to tackle these issues, based on a balanced mix of network, computing, and vehicle autonomy management. We will then discuss how to break it up, so that autonomous vehicles can bend traffic laws in case of emergency.
