Chongming inaugurates 5G ecological demonstration area
The government of Chongming District launched its 5G network development plan and inaugurated the Shanghai 5G network ecological demonstration area on November 29.
The launch ceremony was held at Chongming Dongtan Wisdom Island Data Industry Park. Many 5G-network-enabled devices were on display at the event, including a 5G ultrasonic device from the Chongming branch of Shanghai Xinhua Hospital, 5G unmanned harvesters, a 5G self-driving shuttle bus and 5G unmanned aircraft.
“Chongming will make full use of the 5G network in agriculture, medical treatment, retail, transportation, sports and ecological lifestyle. It will build a pioneering 5G eco-island and ecological demonstration area,” says Tang Hailong, director of Chongming District.
For example, the 5G+ smart harvesters will support the cultivation and management of agricultural production. They are equipped with technology for obstacle avoidance, remote control and self-driving.
These new-energy harvesters can also collect and analyze production data in real time with artificial intelligence technology.
