5G network/the fifth-generation wireless communication has rolled out and has an enormous amount of hype built up due to its powerful signal and secured network connectivity; offering new opportunities for public transport/bus terminals as it becomes more readily available. The 5g network is known as the future of global communication that is defined as people-to-everything (be it doctors to their patients’ devices or enabling augmented reality) and in this case people-to-transport also. So now let us see how to achieve Stable 5G network in bus terminals with Smart Mobile Network Monitoring Tools, Mobile Network Drive Test Tools, Mobile Network Testing Tools and Smart RF drive test tools & equipment, RF tester software app & network LTE 4g tester
5G enhances the public transport department
Whether it’s automobile manufacturers or any other transportation departments such as bus terminals, they all are enhancing with the help of the power of 5G to improve safety, provide a better travel experience to commuters and reduce traffic congestion.
Let’s have a discussion on a public transportation system that can be transformed by 5G in terms of connecting vehicles, pedestrians, urban infrastructure, and so on.
- With 5G technology, route planning for public transport such as buses can be greatly enhanced in terms of live traffic updates and route mapping. This will not only reduce wait times for passengers but also help lower operational costs and strengthen their faith in their chosen mode of transport. For example, bus drivers while driving on the road can receive real-time recommendations such as waiting for 2 minutes in the next bus terminal to pick up 5 more additional passengers with existing onboarded passengers, similarly, passengers will get notification recommendations such as taking the required bus let’s say at Stop C within the next 10 minutes.
- 5G enables vehicle-to-pedestrian technologies that automatically allow vehicles, such as buses, cars, etc., to stop at traffic crossings and regulate the traffic flow. Further, it also warns pedestrian devices if any bus is proceeding at a dangerous hop.
- Vehicle-to-vehicle technologies on 5G allow one smart vehicle, such as a bus to communicate with the other vehicle to maximize road space, and this is possible because of vehicle-to-infrastructure technologies which can detect time signals even when other vehicles are approaching at the same time.
- Traffic flow can be improved by 5G’s traffic signals, which are based on real-time road traffic situations such as peak rush hours get streamlined, making public transportation a convenient option by monitoring via cameras and sensors.
- Public transport such as several buses traveling through the same route that can be set in a platoon (travels very closely together in a straight line via vehicle-to-vehicle communication) enhances not only road safety but also help in managing commuting demands during peak hours and reduce marginal costs. Further, this feature will enable buses (travel in a platoon) to meet additional commuters/travelers’ demands – a great help for bus terminal operators.
Clearly, 5G holds immense potential and a fascinating world of possibilities (be it to run self-driving vehicles and entire smart cities). Compared to 4G, the 5G network is 10 times faster and able to support up to a million devices per square kilometer thereby allowing users to transmit loads of data extremely quickly.
5G comes with higher device density, higher data rates, and lower latency – such characteristics are combined to ensure real-time information flows, which will enable on-demand public transport services, for example- commuters via their mobile app will get notifications about where they want to pick up from and where they are going; autonomous vehicles on 5G will be able to collect onboard passengers in the most effective pattern by following dynamically created routes and taking them to their destinations. For this, 5G requires greater infrastructure investment in terms of managing a stable and sturdy network in bus terminals and public transport, and here comes RantCell (a mobile-based network testing solution) that enables monitoring and test network connectivity. Whether it’s good 5G/4G coverage, high speed, or greater capacity and QoE that all can be achieved through using RantCell.
