Huawei and partners this week showcased a variety of 5G applications such as 5G + virtual reality (VR), 5G + 8K videos, 5G + drones, 5G telemedicine, and a 5G connected ambulance, at an industry event in China. 

5G + VR: At the Panda Sanctuary several kilometers away, 360° VR panoramic cameras broadcast the pandas’ movements from within the enclosure live over the 5G network to delegates wearing VR headsets. While wearing the headsets, participants enjoyed an immersive experience inside the enclosure with the adorable pandas.

5G+8K videos: Supported by 5G networks, the 8K screen displayed live UltraHD (UHD) videos of performances in real time, meaning participants could enjoy these performances with clearer images and details.

In the future, 5G will be further integrated with VR, 8K live streaming, and other services, said Huawei. This will facilitate more innovative applications in areas such as telemedicine and live broadcasting, which will accelerate the development of digital economy. As shown at the event, 5G networks will serve as the foundation of a comprehensive emergency medical aid system consisting of connected ambulances and AI-supported applications like AR, VR, and drones. When a patient boards a 5G-connected ambulance, the doctor can use the in-vehicle medical equipment to complete medical examination slike a blood test, ECG test, or a B-mode scan. At the same time, related information, such as scan images, medical signs, and medical records of the wounded can be sent to hospitals in real time, so that doctors can make emergency treatment plans and prepare for operations in a timely manner. This will save more time for rescuing the wounded and increasing the rate of treatment success.
