Remote Reality Racing with Orange 5G Lab Back to Exhibitor Page
Take part in a remote car race via 5G.
Orange presents, in collaboration with Polyptik, the creator of the Vrombr concept, a car race on a scale model circuit to feel the future possibilities of 5G from the driving seat.
Each participant is equipped with a smartphone connected to Orange Spain’s 5G commercial network to remotely control a 1:10 model vehicle on a 40-meter-long circuit at the Orange 5G Lab in Châtillon on the outskirts of Paris. The vehicles are equipped with 5G SIM cards connected to Orange’s 5G commercial network in France. Using a mobile app, players will try to achieve the best score, from the Barcelona stand. Thanks to an on-board camera, the race is live streamed over 5G from Châtillon and broadcast via the Orange stand in Barcelona. These real-time and remote operations are possible thanks to the high speed and low latency of the 5G network. This demonstration is the result of a collaboration between Polyptik and Orange. The start-up benefitted from the support of the Orange 5G Lab, where it tested its Vrombr concept in a dedicated 5G environment with the help of experts.
