China Mobile and SAIC Motor in association with Huawei conducted demo of the world’s first 5G-based remote driving technology with a consumer car. Their demonstration verified the high-bandwidth, low-latency potential in C-band frequency, laying a foundation for development of connected smart vehicles.
Huawei provided the 5G wireless solution that connected SAIC Motor’s smart concept car, the iGS. China Mobile provided the connectivity.
In the test, the driver was located over 30 kilometers away from the vehicle. Several HD video cameras installed in the vehicle sent multiple real-time HD video feeds to the driver, providing him with a 240-degree view of the vehicle’s surroundings over a high-bandwidth 5G network.
5G core network prototype
China Mobile and Huawei showcased the world’s first 5G core network prototype on the service-based architecture (SBA).
“The service-based architecture makes carrier networks more agile, flexible, scalable, and open. Our goal is to quickly put SBA into large-scale commercial use and enable 5G operations,” said Yang Zhiqiang, deputy general manager of China Mobile Research Institute.
