With proven leadership in wireless, computing, and the cloud, Intel is powering the engine of 5G Connected Transportation, setting the stage for innovation to foster more efficient, enjoyable, and accessible experiences.
Amp Up Passenger Entertainment—5G networks with opportunistic device connectivity will enable passengers in autonomous vehicles to wirelessly stream a range of captivating new media as they travel to their destination. Two passengers could interact with movie characters in virtual reality while another competes in a cloud-based game at low-latency with high-end graphics and sound.
Turn Commute Time Into Productive Time—5G will deliver the high-bandwidth connectivity to empower passengers in autonomous vehicles to videoconference with the same level of quality and reliability as they would experience via a wired connection back at the office. Business professionals will be able to hold meetings, move work forward, and boost efficiency in transit to make the most of their time.
Obtain Services On The Go—5G will equip autonomous vehicles, including drones, to conveniently bring goods and services to people, improving quality of life and presenting opportunities for businesses to offer alternate levels of service that can increase revenues. This transformation flips the typical purchase scenario, allowing people to easily incorporate shopping and errands into busy schedules. People can quickly order items and have them delivered while they are out having lunch, or even bring a clothing boutique right to their door, on demand.
Streamline Business Operations—5G and Blockchain will proliferate a new generation of trucks, trains, ships, and more to improve delivery times and reduce costs. Digital shipping manifests will be transmitted wirelessly, and robotic cranes and forklifts will move shipping containers from ships onto nearby trains and trucks for inland distribution without the need for human control.
Intel and Warner Bros. explored the potential for next-generation entertainment in an autonomous driving world with the unveiling of a first-of-its-kind concept car at CES 2019. Beyond entertainment, the car—part of Intel’s autonomous development fleet— helped passengers understand how interactive communications could be used to keep riders informed and comfortable, and safe.
Intel partnered with NTT Docomo, Ericsson, and Toyota to enable a 5G connection to a connected car, using the Intel GO Automotive Platform. It achieved data speeds of up to 1 Gbps for 4K-resolution video communications with a vehicle traveling at 30 km/h.
