LG Uplus and Hanyang Uni test 5G self-driving car in Seoul
LG Uplus and Hanyang University are testing a 5G self-driving car trial in Seoul to demonstrate how it could solve traffic problems.
South Korean telecoms company LG Uplus used its 5G network for the trial which saw a driverless vehicle dubbed the ‘A1’ drive eight kilometres in heavy traffic for 25 minutes.
The car was seen changing lanes and reacting to vehicles around it. Hanyang University’s ACE Lab said the A1 was close to performing at ‘Level 4’ driverless autonomy.
