Remote Control in Construction

NEWS


In May 2017, NEC announced a trial of remote construction technologies. The trial was conducted with KDDI, Japan’s second-largest telco, and Obayashi, one of the top five construction companies. In this trial, construction machinery equipped with a 4K camera was remote controlled to perform construction processes.

Both the 4K video stream and the remote-control system are based on 5G wireless infrastructure. A 28 GHz spectrum band and beamforming technology are used to transmit large data throughput, while edge computing enables low latency and localized processing.
