5G smart transit, Xiamen BRT to go driverless

The Xiamen Transportation Bureau has signed an agreement with DT Mobile to build a 5G smart network for the city’s transportation system. The project aims to transform Xiamen into a pilot city for 5G smart transit.

5G is the term used to describe the next generation of mobile networks beyond the 4G networks of today. 5G networks are expected to have always-on capabilities and be energy efficient.

Xiamen Transit and DT Mobile will join hands to create China’s first commercial 5G smart transit system on the current Xiamen BRT system. The new network will make it possible for Xiamen’s BRT to achieve driverless operation.
