At a recent event held at The Pearl, Qatar, Ooredoo showcased the power and speed of Ooredoo 5G with Smart City technology that will be available in the future.
The Pearl in Doha is an artificial island spanning nearly four square kilometers. During the event, Ooredoo tested a number of technologies in different locations around The Pearl including a Self-Driving 5G connected Aerial Taxi, 5G Experience Bus and a 5G House Boat.
The highlight of the event was the worlds-first Self-Driving 5G connected Aerial Taxi, a large drone-like vehicle big enough to transport two people to a destination up to 20 minutes away with a 130 Km/h speed. The taxi is automatic and runs on Ooredoo’s 5G network, meaning there is no driver and can deliver passengers safely to their destination above traffic and other time-consuming obstacles.
With the Ooredoo 5G Bus experience, passengers had the chance to test Ooredoo 5G whilst on the move and enjoy a super-connected commute. During the experience, passengers were connected to Ooredoo 5G with speeds up to 2.6 Gbps.
To demonstrate the future of entertainment with 5G, Ooredoo set-up a futuristic 8K VR experience on a modern House Boat in The Pearl. The 8K VR test was ultra-realistic gaming and when connected to Ooredoo 5G offered a seamless experience with no buffering.
