Xiaomi does not build cars, but it can remotely control cars with smartphones. Recently, Xiaomi officially modified a car that can be remotely controlled via the 5G SA network of the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra. Even if the two are thousands of miles apart, they can be controlled in real time to compete with professional drivers.
With the support of the 5G SA low-latency network, Xiaomi realized a remote control of a car. It has been realized at Tianjin International Circuit from Shanghai, and had a PK with professional racing drivers.
Thanks to the 5G SA network’s minimum delay of 1ms, distance is no longer a problem. Even pictures far away from 1158 kilometers can be seen in milliseconds. You can even remotely control the car through your smartphone to realize cornering, drifting, and overtaking.
5G SA can effectively reduce the delay and increase the data transmission rate. And it perfectly solves the delay problem of remote control.
It can reduce the response time from the average 50ms of 4G to 1-2ms. Even if the smartphone is thousands of miles away from the car, it can ensure the ultra-low delay between the remote control and the car’s response, meeting the needs of real-time control.
5G Connectivity Advantages
Unlike 4G, there are two networking options, NSA and SA, in the 5G era.
The full name of 5G NSA is Non-Standalone. It is a 5G network integrated with the current 4G network architecture deployment.
Its construction speed is very fast, and 5G network coverage can be achieved by directly using the 4G core network to add 5G base stations. However, because it still uses the 4G core network, there are some problems related to full-use of 5G features such as Internet of Everything and low latency.
In this sense, the 5G SA is different. Its full name is Standalone, which is a rebuilt 5G base station and 5G core network. So it can fully realize the characteristics and functions of 5G networks such as low latency, high speed, and wide connectivity.
NSA is a necessary stage of 5G development, and SA is the final evolution direction of 5G.
Starting from the second half of 2020, major operators have successively carried out large-scale tests of 5G SA test networks. We have been telling that 5G is not about a new generation of communication only. This technology will change the world, taking it to the next level. Due to low-latency and faster connectivity, remote control of everything become real.
