Mediapro, Telefonica helping tourist buses display 5G-powered AR content

Thursday 5 March 2020 | 09:29 CET | News
Spanish broadcaster Mediapro has joined forces with Telefonica and Barcelona's public transport operator to launch a 5G-powered augmented reality project on the city's tourist buses. The technology enables passengers to view immersive content projected onto the front window of the vehicle, superimposed on the landscape or monuments they observe while touring. The 5G Augmented Tourism project was presented during a tour of the Montjuic mountain area in which users of the Barcelona Bus Turístic (BBT) were treated to an AR-enhanced tourist experience.
