TIM, Ericsson showcase 5G-controlled driverless car in Turin

Friday 26 October 2018 | 15:13 CET | News
Telecom Italia (TIM) and Ericsson have teamed up with the city of Turin to host what the partners claim are the first 5G live demos of services aimed at the general public. On 26 and 27 October the city's Palazzo Madama and Piazza Castello will see a series of 5G live demos featuring driverless cars and drones covering industrial, digital tourism and smart city uses. The partners have switched on a 5G millimeter-wave in Piazza Castello for the occasion, part of their Torino5G project to build the country's first 5G network in the Piedmontese capital by 2020.
