On August 19, Paul Scanlan, the chief technology officer of Huawei’s operator business, gave an exclusive interview with European semiconductor engineering watch, talking about 5g advantages and driverless cars based on 5g architecture. In the interview, he mentioned that 5g is a transformation platform, which is much cheaper than 4G, 3G or 2G. < / P > < p > the main reason is the capacity problem, which has little to do with speed and delay. The capacity of 5g is 20-30 times of that of 4G, 10000 times of 2G, and the power consumption is reduced by 10 times, and the volume is reduced by 70%. < / P > < p > when it comes to driverless driving, scanland thinks that if you really want to achieve driverless, you need to change the infrastructure of the car software, in addition to supporting regulatory policies. He believes that the capital costs of open road management and traffic lights for automatic driving should be handed down to communication operators. Otherwise, there will not be enough capital to drive the full deployment of 5g driverless system. In addition, the pilotless driving is still in the pilot stage all over the world. One of the main reasons why it has not been really implemented is that the laws and regulations can not keep up with the development of technology, and the legislative departments of various countries are still conducting in-depth research on various rules and regulations. Scanland also said that the future of driverless cars will not be dominated by car manufacturers. Observe that the hardware of today’s driverless cars, such as transmission system, motor, storage equipment, power management system, on-board Internet of things and so on, are not made by today’s automobile companies. As a result, Huawei is cooperating with some auto companies to develop 5g driverless technology. What 5g really does is get the driver out of the cab. In the future 5g automatic driving environment, it can be analyzed according to the data processing provided by AI, and there will be no need to set additional traffic lights. The direction of vehicles and pedestrians on all roads, as well as the density of people and the choice of walking and stopping on both sides, will be optimized by 5g Internet of things and artificial intelligence.
