Autonomous vehicles. They’re pretty sweet, especially once you
get behind the wheel of one and take a deep breath as you give up
control. But, if these were to hit the roads on our 4G networks,
with high latency issues, you would die!
Why should you care? A self-driving car on a 4G network,
traveling 60mph, which needs to suddenly hit the brakes to avoid
a collision would move an additional 5 feet on the road before all
the data processes took place to stop the car. On a 5G network, the
car would only move 2.8cm. That’s 1.5 tons of steel moving less
than half your thumb to avoid collision. That’s the sheer power of
what 5G will enable. And how about this: that autonomous
vehicle is talking to the 50 other cars in its surrounding area and
to sensors placed all throughout the environment and streets.
4G VS 5G REACTION
Huawei provided the 4G vs 5G example
in relationship to just how far an
automated car would travel over each
network before it can process the data
to apply car brakes in a dire situation.
