A forklift in Saraburi is controlled from Bangkok using 5G
Thai mobile operator Advanced Info Service (AIS) and industrial leader SCG have begun the country's first 5G trial, operating remote-controlled forklifts via 5G tech on the 2600-megahertz spectrum range.
The trial is using two forklifts for SCG's routine operations in Saraburi, controlled from headquarters in Bangkok's Bang Sue district, according to the Bangkok Post
More forklifts will be connected as the testing rolls out.
The trial of remote-controlled forklifts is being conducted in partnership with Prince of Songkla University.
AIS and SCG have signed a deal for joint R&D for the application of 5G technology to other projects. They also commit to jointly develop workers' skills in line with digital development.
