World's first 5G Olympics: IoT, self-driving cars, artificial intelligence, VR all techy


The Winter Olympics in South Korea officially opened on February 9, 2018 (during the competition period until February 25, 2018), and this year's Winter Olympics are using 5G communication networks. 5G is more than 10 times faster than the LTE (4G) technology currently in common use, featuring low latency, high speed and high capacity.

At the same time, to provide a more realistic visual experience for the audience, Ultra-high-definition (UHD) signal transmission was used on a large scale for some of the events and the opening and closing ceremonies.

In addition, the Korean Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport and Hyundai Motors will operate self-driving cars during the Winter Olympics. The self-driving cars will test-drive from the Seoul Toll Station to the Olympic Stadium on the opening day, and then serve as shuttle cars to transport people during the Olympics, in which the self-driving cars have built-in high-definition maps (HD Mapping) with an error range of less than tens of centimeters.

The Genie Talk application, which uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) translation technology, allows visitors to speak into the software and have it translated into their desired language, including English, Japanese, Chinese, French, Spanish and other languages, in both voice and text form, for trouble-free communication across borders.

5G delivers high-resolution video at all times for a great visual experience

The 23rd Olympic Winter Games will be held in PyeongChang, Gangwon Province, South Korea. For South Korea, this is the best place to showcase 5G technology, and ICT technologies such as Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence, ultra-high resolution live TV and Virtual Reality (VR) will also be the main focus of the Winter Olympics, bringing participants an unprecedented visual and audio experience.

For TV broadcast applications, KTV uses both 4K and ultra-high resolution (UHD) technology to broadcast the competition, covering short track speed skating, ice hockey, figure skating, ski jumping and other events. UHD (3,840 x 2,160 resolution) is more than four times clearer than the original HD playback and includes stereo sound for a more immersive visual and auditory experience.

With transmission via 5G technology, large-scale data transmission can be ensured without delays. The South Korean telecom operator expects to deploy it commercially by the end of 2019.

On the other hand, spectators will wear a bracelet that records personal information upon entry, which can be used for various virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) game experiences related to the Winter Olympics, including VR roller coaster and VR bobsled, etc. As long as they ride the roller coaster and bobsled and wear vr glasses, they will be able to race on the virtual track like the Olympic athletes.

Korea brings world's first '5G Olympics'

The current 5G coverage includes major venues such as Pyeongchang, Gangneung, and Jeongseon, and the 5G technology applications are divided into three major parts, namely Sync View, Omni Point View, and Time Slice.

For example, a skater executing a fast triple lutz-triple jump combination on the ice is hard to see from a seat at the back of the rink because of the short time it takes to do so. With synchronized viewing, time slicing, and 360-degree panoramic VR, the entire rink can be viewed in 360 degrees, even on a smartphone, with a swipe on the screen to view a specific jump, which may only take a few seconds, or applied to bobsled viewing, which races around the track at over 150 miles per hour, keeping track of the athlete's condition and allowing viewers to watch the race from all angles of the athlete.

In the synchronized view, a mini lens is installed in front of the bobsled to give viewers an immersive experience and to watch the event live from the first view of the competitors. In the panoramic view, a lens is installed on the skiing course and a chip is placed on each competitor, so that the position of each competitor can be tracked in real time throughout the race and the environment of the competitor can be switched at any time.

The synchronized viewing technology application is a 5G communication module built into the ultra-high-speed camera and captured by dozens of cameras to provide stereoscopic images, cutting and replaying 360 degrees of each moment of the skater's movements to capture the moment of the skater's jumps in the sport of figure skating.
