Benefits of the 5G Network: Remote Operation to Autonomous Cars

The 5G network is in sight. At the Mobile World Congress 2019 arena that just took place in Barcelona, ​​some 5G smartphones have been introduced. Maybe next year, several countries have begun to implement it.

As is known, Huawei is among the most keen to develop 5G technology. In early February, they posted an ad in New Zealand’s top newspaper, claiming that “5G without Huawei is like rugby without New Zealand.” Rugby is synonymous with Australia’s neighboring country.

“We want to show the world that 5G can make the world better, and we take the lead in this,” Huawei, Richard Yu, told reporters at MWC.

In addition to ordinary telecommunications, the 5G network that is claimed to be super speeding is actually what are the benefits? The following is an example according to Huawei in its statement.

1. Telesurgery 5G First

On January 8, a surgeon in Fujian, China, succeeded in operating the removal of a lab test animal’s liver with a robotic arm which is about 32 miles away, aka remotely. With Huawei’s fast and stable 5G connection, doctors execute the operation.

This successful trial is considered good news for the health industry, where doctors will be able to break through space barriers and truly become ‘Doctors without Borders’. With the development of a 5G connection, patients in rural areas can make appointments with specialists and do not need to suffer from lack of health services.

2. Drones everywhere including agriculture

Drone technology has been applied for many uses in the military, shooting and mapping with cameras. Well, 5G technology will make the application of drones everywhere, spread to other fields such as agriculture. With a stable 5G connection, farmers can stay at home and spray pesticides into fields using remotely operated drones.

3. VR and AR Games

With standalone VR headsets marketed, web augmented reality (AR), and virtual reality (VR) are likely to move to the cloud rather than continue to use a PC. This is where 5G comes in, where very fast connections with low latency free gamers from having to use wired or nausea heads caused by latency problems.

Cloud-based experience with the minimum lagging problem claimed by Huawei will bring a more realistic AR gaming experience with high video quality.

4. Cars without drivers

People today are increasingly unwilling to drive themselves, for example because of traffic jams. There are reasons why services such as Uber and Grab have been popular in recent years, and why public transportation systems have always been a social issue that is widely discussed.

The ease of mobility and transportation has always been an important part of technological breakthroughs. Because 5G connections allow autonomous cars to interact with each other in real time, the realization of a car without a driver is closer to realization.

5. Smart City

Smart City uses information and communication technology (ICT) to run urban areas efficiently. This means that various types of electronic data will be collected and used to analyze, adjust and optimize the living conditions of urban residents. This will include a large amount of data that needs to be sent quickly and reliably. This is where 5G comes in.

For example, 5G will enable officials to monitor air quality in cities in real time, and subsequently, respond to the danger of air quality immediately.

A fast connection that allows real-time and long-distance communication, allows many industries to use remote controlled vehicles and machines, reducing the need for human presence in many risk situations. It can increase safety standards in heavy industry workplaces such as mining, petroleum and others.
