The annual Wuxi World Expo of things opened recently. The first offline activity focused on the integration of Internet of things and 5g, highlighting the important position of 5g communication technology.
Looking at the global Internet of things, the scale of Wuxi Internet of things industry is growing, taking the lead in integrating with 5g, enterprise clusters are gradually formed, innovative achievements begin to emerge, and application demonstration drives the whole province“ What does “5g + Internet of things” mean? Participating experts and scholars share the latest trends in the industry. No matter enabling the industrial Internet and driverless, or starting the intelligent alliance of all things, our province has independently controlled a series of application transcripts in key technologies. Jiangsu 5g integrated the Internet of things to find its own rhythm and process, and “walk with the beat”.
5g enables industrial Internet, and the future network is deeply integrated with the real economy
“In order to adapt to the deep integration of the future network and the real economy, we need to be” intelligent, flexible and customizable. ” Zhang Ping, academician of Chinese Academy of engineering, said at the first innovation and Development Conference on the integration of Internet of things and 5g that the carrier of “intelligence, flexibility and customization” is 5g enabled industrial Internet.
In Jiangsu, there are many cases of 5g integration of industrial Internet of things. Taking Jiangsu Guoxin group as an example, it uses industrial Internet to build “Jiangsu Guoxin smart energy information platform”. Relying on 5g communication technology, 15 home appliance factories, 700 departments, 8000 users and more than 14 million installed capacity have been connected“ Through IOT equipment, the platform realizes security risk hierarchical management and control, early warning and prediction, and dynamically presents security status. ” Wu aibin, chairman of platform technology provider luculent Smart Technology Co., Ltd., said that before that, information platform software was monopolized by foreign countries, and the price of sales and maintenance was high; Now we have successfully realized the self-control of domestic products, and have the “gate of life” in our own hands.
The logistics industry, which relies on human resources, is making great efforts to transform from labor-intensive to technology intensive. Industrial Internet technology has brought the logistics industry from the traditional mode of carrying on one’s shoulders into a new era of technology driven logistics. Suning yuncang, located in Nanjing Yuhua logistics base, has 24-hour “full fire” and “5g integration of industrial Internet technology can realize the allocation of goods in and out of the warehouse, automatic storage and movement of goods.” According to reports, the biggest efficiency of industrial Internet is to reduce labor costs and realize the unmanned logistics of unloading, picking, packaging, sorting and loading.
Of course, the new network composed of 5g + Internet of things still needs to deal with specific challenges in the development of network, industry and business model, and further increase investment to promote integration.
“Judging from the current development of 5g industrial Internet in Jiangsu, there are also problems such as insufficient digital infrastructure, low networking rate of small and medium-sized enterprises, unclear network standards and different protocols.” Experts at the meeting suggested that 5g should be included in the industrial wireless technology standard, full coverage of production area network and data interconnection of various systems should be realized through edge computing and other technologies, enterprises, equipment and industrial chains should be encouraged to go to the cloud synchronously, and the distance between cloud and production line should be shortened through “5g + edge computing”, so as to create a flat, systematic and differentiated 5g industrial network.
5g intelligent driving, let “smart car” drive to “smart road”
In the field of transportation, the development of the Internet of things has further strengthened the relationship between cars and the outside world. In Wuxi IOT innovation promotion center, 5g and IOT applications on vehicles attract the attention of visitors.
Visitors sit in the cockpit as if they are playing the “remote driving” of the driving game. Different from unmanned driving, remote driving means that the driver sits in the remote virtual cockpit and watches the road conditions in front of the vehicle in real time through the screen. The driver operates the steering wheel and other facilities in the virtual cockpit, and quickly transmits the steering, fuel door, brake and other signals to the vehicle through 5g network, and remotely controls the vehicle driving.
Remote unmanned driving is being explored, 5g automatic driving has achieved a qualitative leap. Looking at Europe and the United States, the unmanned vehicles represented by Google can detect objects as far as two football fields. Tesla’s unmanned vehicles have been mass produced and put into use. With the help of core capabilities such as vehicle road coordination and high-precision positioning, Jiangsu Province has many application scenarios, such as Suzhou new high-speed railway intelligent network connected vehicle pilot zone and Wuxi Internet of vehicles pilot zone.
Suzhou High Speed Rail New Town intelligent network connected vehicle pilot area is a demonstration project built by Suzhou for the intelligent transportation World Conference. At present, the first phase of the project has completed the reconstruction of 8.4 km road. Tao Qun, deputy general manager of Suzhou mobile, said that the first phase construction of high-speed rail new town pays more attention to vehicle road coordination on the basis of single vehicle intelligence. With the help of 5g low delay and large bandwidth, it enables vehicles to effectively judge roadside information, improves the safety of automatic driving, and lays a foundation for the large-scale commercial use of automatic driving.
5g technology is not only limited to making the car cockpit intelligent, but also starting to make the road and other infrastructure more “smart”. The pilot area of Wuxi Internet of vehicles adopts lte-v2x technology, combined with Internet of things, artificial intelligence, its and other new technologies, focusing on the realization of urban end-to-end auxiliary driving, greatly improving traffic efficiency and ensuring traffic safety.
Walking into the core application area of Wuxi Internet of vehicles pilot area, we can see that dual-mode RSU equipment has been deployed at each intersection, and traffic signs and signs have been comprehensively upgraded. There are 40 such intersections. In the real experience vehicle, the traffic light information, congestion information and surrounding vehicle information of the intersection in front of the road section can be obtained in real time through the intelligent rear-view mirror. At the same time, the distance between the vehicle and the intersection can be understood through the v2x system, and the recommended speed of straight through the intersection in front of the road can be given.
5g starts the intelligent alliance of all things to build a universal network of people and equipment
The foundation of all things intelligent alliance is the construction of ten thousand stations. According to Wang Qi, vice president of ZTE, three major operators are expected to deploy 750000 5g base stations by the end of this year. From this figure, we can feel the great determination to promote 5g network. Jiangsu’s 5g base stations will also reach 55000 by the end of 2020, laying a good hardware foundation for all things intelligent alliance.
The high-speed configuration of 5g hardware has started the button of all things intelligent alliance, and the smart home products represented by intelligent door lock, air conditioner and water heater have entered thousands of households. In case of faucet leakage and natural gas pipeline leakage, the mobile phone can receive prompt immediately, and the system can also link the manipulator to close the valve to ensure the safe environment of kitchen and toilet. The intelligent kitchen and bathroom system developed by Nanjing IOT Sensor Technology Co., Ltd. has been widely used in the new residential area“ By installing low-energy IOT sensors on the valves, long-term safety early warning can be achieved at a lower cost. ” The person in charge of the company said.
Through the overall interconnection solution, it has been able to realize the interconnection of people and mobile phones and other devices. Chen Yudong, President of Bosch (China) Investment Co., Ltd., said in the keynote speech that the integration of transportation, buildings, energy and security also makes the integrated solution of smart city possible.
A “smart” building will be equipped with carbon dioxide, temperature, HVAC and other sensors, so that the HVAC system, refrigeration system, lighting system in the building have real-time monitoring and intelligent control. According to the staff of Jiangsu vision intelligent Internet of things Global Innovation Center, taking the refrigeration system as an example, most of the buildings are set by central air conditioning, and the change of surrounding weather environment will not be monitored and adjusted. If the weather condition is monitored by sensors, when the building “knows” that it will rain later, it will reduce the high-power work of the central air conditioning, which can save a lot of energy in a year.
However, it is also a “double-edged sword”. The development of Internet of things has come to a crossroads and is facing various new challenges. IOT has also raised security concerns about privacy leakage. Rob van craneburg, founder of the European Council for the Internet of things, said in the congratulatory video of the conference that on the one hand, some technologies and innovations did not provide meaningful services; on the other hand, innovative business models were not transparent in terms of security, privacy, financing, etc., which made it difficult for people to rest assured. He said that with the deep integration of 5g and the Internet of things, the entities connected to the network are changing – people, driverless cars and household appliances, which requires innovative regulatory models; He believes that China will make great achievements in the development of Internet of things and intelligence.
