A Thailand mobile operator launched new 5G-equipped surveillance vehicle technology. This technology will help detect suspicious items and automobiles in southern Thailand.

The prototype innovation, called surveillance and security vehicles, was presented at a media event in Songkhla recently.

Video analytics and AI will log video data from CCTV cameras on vehicles into a central control room via the 5G network.

This enables the analysis of images and identification of objects on the cars. For example, data on suspect license plates, car models, the colour and the appearance of vehicles is will be generated.

With the information about suspicious vehicles is stored, risk notifications can be sent to various areas in real-time. Moreover, the system issues alerts as soon as tagged vehicles pass into certain areas.

The technology is expected to be a boon for security tasks in the insurgency-plagued Deep South.

The mobile operator also promoted a 5G remote control vehicle, which made its way from Bangkok to Songkhla, a distance of 950 kilometres.

The driverless vehicle shows the potential of 5G networks for signal transmission speed with its quick rate of response and the stability of the technology to control a car without drivers.

The projects are part of a collaboration between the mobile operator, the government and education sectors to use digital technology and services to strengthen South Thailand’s economy.

There is a need to test 5G wireless communication technology as it plays an essential role in developing the digital economy and enhancing the quality of life for people.

Thailand is an important strategic area for the company because of its economic strength and the availability of personnel for development and innovation.

The focus is on using digital infrastructure to strengthen the area under the 3G and 4G networks. This digital infrastructure will cover 1,083 tambons throughout the 14 southern provinces.

Currently, the mobile operator has more than 80,000 base stations nationwide, of which 5,732 are located in southern provinces.

The expansion of distribution channels allows people in the Southern Thailand to conveniently access more than 4,000 points.

In addition, Prince of Songkla University will be collaborating with the firm to test the real-world applicability of 5G technology. This is the first time a 5G test will be conducted in the Southern Thailand with the support of the telecom regulator.

Another technology being launched is a demonstration of innovative vehicle-to-vehicle communication which happened through the 5G network that can send and receive high-speed data with fast and stable response.

What Thailand gains 5G tech deployment

In Thailand, communications technology advancement is considered the key to success for every mobile phone networking business and over 128 million registered numbers nationwide.

The long-awaited services, particularly for smartphone handsets, take the technology to new levels, including downloading capacity of 5 minutes for a 2-hour movie clip and maximising the efficiency of Augmented Reality- and Virtual Reality-based mobile applications.

Compared to 4G, 5G cuts the latency to 1 millisecond, enabling less network interference and delays. Apart from the entertainment benefits, the phenomenal shift also impacts financial transactions and online shopping, for safer and more convenient services.

The fast deployment and adoption of 5G wireless technology in Thailand is expected to increase opportunities and competitiveness of the country’s economy and counter the effects of a dwindling labour force and the emergence of the era of ageing society.
