Ericsson and Telic are networking buses via 5G in Rome
Networking buses via 5G in Rome
Through the expansion of the 5G network, innovative applications can be developed that can significantly improve the efficiency and reliability of, for example, public transport.
To improve passenger safety, video surveillance was installed on some buses on an experimental basis to detect and report dangerous situations in real time. Three video cameras were installed on board these buses to transmit high-resolution images to a control center. Thanks to the use of artificial intelligence, these recordings are analysed in real time to report critical situations (use of weapons, unattended luggage, or panic among passengers) on the bus.
Telic's telematics sensor is used in this overall application to relay emergency messages manually triggered by the bus driver. In conjunction with the emergency message, the exact position of the vehicle is transmitted at the same time.
Furthermore, temperature, humidity and smog sensors are connected to the Telic telematics box. In addition to the sensors, vehicle data is transmitted to the telematics box via the CAN bus and filtered from there.
All these data are transmitted via wLAN to a 5G terminal and from there, together with the video data, to a central server control center.
In the course of this project, extensive data was collected, which is currently being evaluated.
