Sony Company and NTT DOCOMO, INC. introduced at present that they may collectively trial Sony’s conceptual driverless automobile, the New Idea Cart SC-1, which leverages 5G cellular applied sciences for varied remotely managed capabilities.
The take a look at shall be carried out utilizing the trial community in DOCOMO 5G Open Lab GUAM, which is able to present take a look at amenities and an out of doors verification setting constructed by DOCOMO and operated by DOCOMO PACIFIC, INC., a completely owned subsidiary of DOCOMO.
The take a look at will confirm information transmission and operational efficiency required to remotely management the cart from a protracted distance through the extra-high velocity, massive capability, low latency and massive-device connectivity.
This would be the corporations’ second joint trial of 5G applied sciences, following a trial carried out in Japan in 2017 to check the real-time transmission of high-definition video through a 5G system to a 4K digital-signage system fitted to the skin of the cart.
The New Idea Cart SC-1 is a extremely conceptual automobile that includes artificial-intelligence (AI) and robotics applied sciences developed by Sony.

The 4K digital-signage system can be utilized for displaying ads and different content material in high-quality decision to passersby.
Going ahead, Sony and DOCOMO will collaborate additional to increase the applying of 5G applied sciences.
