As it turned out at the conference, the new network is not only the fastest in the world but also a network that will completely change our lives and affect global communications. "5G will have a huge impact on people's lives," says Laila Worrell, CEO of Altran North America, a high - tech engineering company. "We will all witness great progress and new technologies, the main culprit of which will be the new network."
5G and drones
BMW iNEXT model should appear on the market in 2021. Unmanned vehicles have long been objects that everyone was waiting for and wanted to see for a long time. And the new 5G network has made these ideas a reality.
Experts say that 5G can become 100 times faster than 4G, and a huge number of devices can simultaneously connect to the network. This will allow vehicles to communicate with each other in real-time: they will know when another vehicle is changing lanes or braking and can influence traffic accordingly.
For example, the electric SUV BMW iNEXT is equipped with sensors that collect and process data from the situations around it. This car is constantly studying and analyzing the road, and then sends information to the cloud, generating a real map in real-time, which, in turn, applies to all other cars.
5G and beekeeping
The benefits of 5G do not end there. The network can also have a beneficial impact on the environment when used in agriculture. David Houghton, General Manager of Asset Tracking Solutions at NimbeLink, explains how 5G and the Internet of things can help protect honeybees and accelerate the production and delivery of this product worldwide. "Tracking devices will be able to monitor the condition and safety of the hive," he says. Thus, a whole system of tracking and control of hives has been developed, with the help of which data such as temperature and humidity are determined by sensors and transmitted to the main computer.
