KT's 5G self-driving buses that will be introduced at "Sangam Self-driving 5G Festival" on June 22.

KT (Chairman Hwang Chang-gyu) said on June 22 that it will introduce 5G self-driving buses to citizens at "Sangam Self-driving 5G Festival."

"Sangam Self-driving Festival" is an event for people to experience self-driving as part of the Cooperative-Intelligent Transport System (C-ITS) project by the Seoul Metropolitan Government and the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport. 

Companies such as KT, Samsung Electronics, SK Telecom, Unmanned Solution, and IT Telecom will showcase 5G self-driving cars and demonstration of V2X-connected cars at "5G Self-driving Testbed" in Sangam-dong from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on June 22.

At the event, KT will host an event for citizens to board self-driving buses along with seven self-driving cars on the 1.1-kilometer section of the World Cup route.  Unmanned Solution, a partner in KT's self-driving business, will operate the fully self-driving shuttle "WITH:US", which was introduced with KT at the World IT Show 2019. Inside "WITH:US", there is no steering wheel and passengers can experience 5G VR content through KT's Giga-live TV.

In addition to test-drive events for self-driving cars, "Sangam Self-driving Festrial" also operates an exhibition booth for vehicles and self-driving technologies. 

KT plans to display the 5G Remote Cockpit, which won the Best Innovative 5G Trial category at the 5G World Awards. 5G Remote Cockpit is a self-driving remote control system that succeeded in demonstrating in K-City, South Korea's first self-driving experimental city, in December last year.

The 5G Remote Cockpit is an essential technology in the coming era of self-driving and ensures safe operation by remote control of vehicles through intervention by control centers when emergency situations occur in vehicles.

"KT is planning to work hard on developing technologies and actively lead commercialization of self-driving cars through testing of self-driving cars at self-driving testbeds." said Choi Kang-rim, executive director of KT's connected car business center.
