Xiaomi does not build cars, but it can remotely control cars with mobile phones.
Recently, Xiaomi officially modified a car that can be remotely controlled through the Xiaomi Mi 10 Extreme Commemorative Edition 5G SA network. Even if the two are thousands of miles apart, they can be controlled in real-time and race with professional drivers.
It is reported that with the support of the 5G SA low-latency network, Xiaomi realized a remote control of a car at Tianjin International Circuit from Shanghai, and had a PK with professional racers.
Thanks to the 5G SA network’s minimum delay of 1ms, distance is no longer a problem, and pictures far away from 1158 kilometers can be seen in milliseconds. You can even remotely control the car through your mobile phone to realize cornering, drifting, and overtaking.
It is reported that 5G SA can effectively reduce the delay and increase the data transmission rate, and perfectly solve the delay problem of remote control.
It can reduce the response time from an average of 50ms in 4G to 1-2ms. Even if the mobile phone is thousands of miles away from the car, it can ensure the ultra-low delay between the remote control and the car’s response to meet the needs of real-time control.
Unlike 4G, there are two networking options, NSA and SA, in the 5G era. The 5G NSA is Non-Standalone, which is a 5G network integrated with the current 4G network architecture deployment.
Its construction speed is very fast, and 5G network coverage can be achieved by directly using the 4G core network to install 5G base stations. However, because the 4G core network is still used, 5G features such as the Internet of Everything and low latency cannot be brought into full play.
The 5G SA is different. Its full name is Standalone, which is a rebuilt 5G base station and 5G core network, so as to fully realize the features and functions of 5G networks such as low latency, high speed, and wide connectivity.
NSA is a necessary stage of 5G development, and SA is the final evolution direction of 5G. There were reports earlier that starting from the second half of 2020, major operators have successively carried out large-scale tests of 5G SA test networks.
