Sony, Docomo to test driverless concept vehicle via 5G trial network in Guam

Wednesday 27 March 2019 | 09:28 CET | News
The test will verify data transmission and operational performance required to remotely control the cart from a long distance via high speed connectivity. This will be the firms' second joint trial of 5G services, following a trial conducted in Japan in 2017 to test the real-time transmission of HD video via a 5G system to a 4K digital-signage system fitted to the outside of the cart.
