Although the consumer penetration rate of 5G services remains low, more businesses are using 5G technology to develop applications that offer more diverse content and facilitate production processes, the National Communications Commission said yesterday.
Kaohsiung Music Center has become the nation’s first exhibition venue to offer performances combining music and 5G artificial intelligence (AI) of things, the commission said.
The V Future Party (高流未來趴) this year is set to become the nation’s largest performance integrating virtual reality and real-time performance, the commission said.
The performances are to combine Chunghwa Telecom’s 5G network, AI technology and high-end facilities at the center, it added.
Participants in the V Future Party would see AI manga characters perform with live dancers, the commission said.
The party integrates online and offline performances by utilizing high-speed and low-latency characteristics of the 5G system and multiple high-speed cameras to capture real-time actions in three dimensions, it said.
The new form of performance brings new possibilities to performing arts, it added.
Meanwhile, China Steel Corp has used the 5G enterprise private network technology developed by Chunghwa Telecom to monitor its operations along a 900m-long steel slag transportation track and remote-control slag receiving operations, the commission said.
This assists greatly in avoiding industrial safety accidents, it said.
Through the 5G system, on-site images and data can be sent immediately to the vehicle dispatch center, the commission said.
In addition, the safety of the steel factory is enhanced by the driving safety assistance system, it said.
“When the slag-receiving vehicle is moving for a long distance in the factory area, a foreign object intruding after a level crossing is lowered would immediately trigger a warning sound and automatically notify the slag-receiving vehicle to stop,” the commission said.
