SK Telecom set up a high-speed 5G network in the K-City test site for self-driving cars modeled after Michigan's M-City, writes Korea Joongang Daily citing a company statement. K-City is being built in Hwaseong, Gyeonggi by Korea Transportation Safety Authority. The company said it installed a control centre for 5G that can share data with test cars in less than 0.001 seconds. It also set up infrastructure there that is meant to make three-dimensional maps for cars more accurate.
