SK Telecom and Samsung Heavy Industries teamed up to develop the industry’s first 5G-based autonomous and remote control navigation test platform and built a Remote Control Center in South Korea.

 

 

They conducted a test in a location covered by SK Telecom's 5G network with a test ship that was equipped with 5G-based LiDAR, cloud-based IoT platform and T-Live Caster, SK Telecom’s real-time video monitoring solution.

 

The testing done allowed them to verify that the ship was able to be operated remotely and managed in real-time via 5G connectivity.

 

This success is a positive step towards the technology for autonomous ship navigation being powered by 5G - and the future innovations with the 5G network.
