China's 5G tech enables comprehensive digital transformation

By the end of June, some 1.85 million 5G base stations have been built

China has been expanding its 5G infrastructure at a rapid pace, utilizing the next-generation wireless technology to facilitate the digitalization of different sectors of the country.

By the end of June, some 1.85 million 5G base stations have been built, supporting over 450 million end users, both accounting for over 60 percent of the global total.

The rapidly expanding telecom network, featuring high speed, high reliability and low latency, has enabled futuristic scenarios in sectors like manufacturing, medical services and farming.

SMART FACTORY

China's leading automotive lithium-ion battery maker Contemporary Amperex Technology Co., Ltd. (CATL) is digitalizing its battery plants.

The centrally-controlled production, ultra-high speed visual quality inspection and augmented-reality expertise system at the CATL production plant are all 5G enabled.

The 5G tech allows CATL engineers to monitor the entire workshop in real-time and quickly handle technical issues remotely as if they were on-site.

The cell coating is one of the most delicate processes in battery production since materials must be evenly spread on micrometer-thick copper or aluminum foils.

In the workshop, employees use tablet computers to control the extrusion heads of coating machines at full pace.

A two-story-high coating machine, measuring 100 meters in length, can handle a 100-meter-long foil per minute, producing one cell in 1.7 seconds. Its defect rate is recorded as merely one in billion, thanks to fast and stable 5G transmission.

The factory also has more than 200 5G-enabled automated vehicles shuttling through the assembly lines to transport batteries and other materials.

CATL plans to implement 5G tech in its 10 global production bases, said Chen Ling, the company's chief information officer.

The state-owned shipbuilder is working with scientists from Shanghai Jiao Tong University to develop a 5G-enabled smart system to shorten the working process in shipbuilding from 14 hours to about two hours.

REMOTE SURGERY

In 2019, a surgeon at Shanghai-based Huashan Hospital performed an endoscopic surgery to remove the pituitary tumor in a patient's brain.

About 20 kilometers away, nearly 60 interns closely watched the operation, which was live-streamed on a 4K high-definition screen. Thanks to 5G wireless devices developed by Chinese telecom giant Huawei, such cutting-edge technology was possible.

It marked the launch of Shanghai's first 5G smart medicine pilot base. Surgical procedures in China are evolving due to the 5G network's low latency advantage.

On Jan. 17 this year, surgeons at Huashan made an attempt to excise a basicranial tumor, bolstered by 5G mixed reality (MR) technology developed by a Shanghai-based startup.

Wearing VR headsets, they cut out target tissues precisely through a five-centimeter skin incision. The brain's enhanced 3D holographic images were projected in real-time upon the patient's scalp to indicate exact locations inside the brain.

Huashan's 5G+MR surgery was listed among the Top 10 Cases at this year's World 5G Convention held in Harbin last week.

DIGITAL FARM

Agriculture, commonly seen as a natural resource, has also been integrated with 5G technology.

At a rice paddy field in northeast China's Heilongjiang Province, a probe equipped with a 5G-enabled AI camera is used to realize leaf age diagnosis, disease identification, pest control and prevention of plant diseases.

Along lush crop rows, water-level sensors are installed to measure soil moisture and enable automatic irrigation.

"The 5G digital farm has improved tillage, making agriculture more manageable," said Meng Qi, a contractor of the smart farm.

"5G agricultural machinery, Internet of Things, artificial intelligence and other digital technologies are becoming the new tools for rural development," said Li Daoliang, director of the International College Beijing, China Agricultural University, as reported by Xinhua News Agency, a partner of TV BRICS.
