You Must Know 5G: 3D Sensing Will Reshape These Industries And Ultrasonic Sensor Application

- Jun 11, 2019-

On June 6, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology officially issued 5G commercial licenses, marking China's entry into the 5G commercial year.


For AI 3D sensing technology, the opportunities brought by 5G are huge – whether it is AR/VR, new retail, or recently attracted smart home, autopilot, 5G+3D sensing technology. The combination will allow the "smart +" concept to truly land on a large scale.

Why is 5G bringing new opportunities to AI 3D sensing?

Subject to the development of 4G and previous communication technologies, most of the past, people can only display the world with two-dimensional information, and the development of AI 3D vision applications is slow.

The problem of "living in three-dimensional space and being trapped in two-dimensional information" will be solved in the 5G era.

5G has high speed (enhanced mobile broadband, eMBB), high-capacity (large-scale machine communication, mMTC), low latency (high-reliability low-latency communication, URLLC) features, which can make up for 3D data information. Defects such as insufficient transmission rate, providing the underlying core technology support for 3D/Ultra HD video, AIOT, driverless, industrial automation and other fields. For example, in the 4G era, the 3D scene scanned by the user can only be processed on the local device. The hardware requirements are higher and the processing speed is slower. On the 5G network, the user can upload the collected 3D scene to the cloud for calculation. In a matter of seconds, users can view real 3D scenes on the mobile phone.

It is foreseeable that the 3D sensing industry will catch up with the 5G express train to usher in a new round of rapid growth. The 3D sensing technology based on 5G and AI technology will also incite AR/VR, smart home, unmanned driving and other fields to drive the development of upstream and downstream industries and accelerate the comprehensive arrival of the era of Internet of Everything.

5G+AI 3D, which areas will seize the opportunity?

AR/VR: A fun cloud gaming experience


After the mobile phone 3D camera collects three-dimensional information such as space and human body, it can be uploaded to the cloud through 5G to render more complex and fine 3D content to realize the cloud AR game experience. After the VR device detects the human body action posture through the 3D camera, it can use 5G high. The speed, low latency feature projects data information into VR games in real time, and players will enjoy a more enjoyable gaming experience.

New retail: passenger flow statistics analysis, container product identification

The 3D camera can collect the number of passengers, track the movement trajectory of the customer's store, and transmit the data to the cloud through 5G. It can realize the hotspot data statistics, analyze the functions of the goods/personnel and the resident status of the goods; the 3D camera can also automatically identify the shipping cabinet. If the goods are out of stock, misplaced, and placed in non-compliance, use 5G to upload the data to the cloud for processing, which can realize functions such as identifying, clearing goods, and optimizing shelf display.

Smart Home: 3D data interaction between smart devices

SENSOR IN Smart Home

Devices such as smart speakers, smart air conditioners, and smart refrigerators can be interconnected through 5G networks, and data interaction is realized through 3D-aware devices to actively provide services to users.

Intelligent security: 3D face recognition, real-time warning of danger

3D camera can collect 3D data of space, object and human body, quickly and accurately restore the real 3D world, realize 3D face recognition, motion recognition, behavior analysis, number of people and other functions. Video surveillance uses 5G to transmit 3D data information. Early warning and real-time feedback.

Autopilot: transmitting 3D data with low latency

The car equipped with area array laser radar can transmit the collected 3D data to the cloud through 5G real-time processing, realize seamless connection and interaction between vehicles, signal lights, intelligent master control platforms, etc., and achieve automatic driving.

Industrial measurement: real-time transmission of 3D measurement data

Industrial 3D measurement equipment can transfer the collected 3D data to the cloud or computer room for processing through 5G, and transmit the processed data to the production line in real time through 5G, further improving industrial production efficiency.

In the era of 5G, Obi Zhongguang will continue to promote the innovation of 3D sensing technology and industry application, strengthen the integration of 3D sensing and 5G technology, and accelerate the field of AIOT in new retail, smart phones, smart homes, smart security and so on. The deep empowerment enables the interconnection of everything between people and things, things and things, and helps the traditional industry to upgrade and transform.
