5G Technology Helps China’s Parks to Get Smarter


Nanshan District installed three smart solar panel benches which can store electricity through the absorption of solar energy in the daytime. The smart 5G bench is equipped with free WiFi access, phone-charging ports and wireless charging. People can place the mobile phone on the bench and it will automatically charge the phone. They can also use the free WiFi to listen to music while exercising nearby. The benches have become parkgoers’ favourite for leisure and exercises at Sihai Park in Nanshan District, Shenzhen city.

For the deployment of 5G applications in parks, Nanshan has piloted 12 scenarios at Shenzhen Talent Park, Dasha River Ecological Corridor, Shenzhen Bay Coastal Belt and Sihai Park. The scenarios include colour frequency, low-light 5G video cameras, 5G flexible screens, driverless cleaning vehicles and smart toilets.

With a vocal service to remind walkers, the automated cleaning vehicles are applied along a section on Dasha River Ecological Corridor, which is about 2 kilometres between the mouth of Dasha River at Shenzhen Bay and Shennan Boulevard. The vehicle has two operation models with one to sweep the whole area and the other to spot certain places. It can also turn about to avoid pedestrians.

The colour frequency, low-light 5G cameras are installed in hard-to-reach patrol areas in parks and areas along rivers and lakes. The cameras can capture videos in dim light. In Sihai Park, whose lake size takes up one-third of the total area, the cameras can remind park visitors if they are getting too close to the water area and if they are in possible danger. Visitors can learn the distribution of toilets, the number of visitors and sanitation conditions of toilets through the screens installed on the walls. Exhaust fans automatically operate as and when needed.

The park’s story is the tip of the iceberg of applications of 5G in Nanshan District, Shenzhen City. The city is encouraging the use of 5G in industrial Internet, Internet of Vehicles, high-definition videos and smart drones. Model projects will be selected each year and will each receive a maximum subsidy of US$4.7 million.

Shenzhen City will spend more money on applications of 5G in firefighting, production safety, emergency services, police affairs and urban governance to build a digital government. To become a global benchmark city in the construction and application of 5G networks, Shenzhen unveiled a slew of measures to promote high-quality 5G development.

China forecasts that during the period from 2020 to 2025, 5G commercial applications will directly drive US$1.27 billion. With a total of 46,480 stations, Shenzhen is the world’s No. 1 city in terms of 5G stations per person., China will also add more than 600,000 5G base stations in 2021.

The China Academy of Information and Communications Technology has said that the country is likely to spend US$186 million on 5G network construction by 2025, driving more than 3.5 trillion yuan of investment in the upstream and downstream industrial chains and other related sectors by then and 8.2 trillion yuan in information consumption. Around 20% of 5G applications will be consumer-oriented, and 80% of its commercial potential lies in its use in traditional sectors.

According to a report, China is on the right track to becoming the winner of 5G. With 5G, China has been eyeing the opportunity to be a leading technology innovator, after its diversion from the global network norms in the 3G and 4G mobile technologies. China’s active role in the 5G development in recent years has demonstrated the country’s determination to gain technical leadership in the international 5G stage.
