EH216 AAV completes its Japan’s first passenger-carrying demo flight

EHang Holdings Limited has announced that its EH216 passengergrade autonomous aerial vehicle (AAV) has completed its first passenger-carrying autonomous flight demonstration within Japan, which also marks the first passenger-carrying flight for an autonomous eVTOL aircraft in Japan.

Earlier in July 2022, EH216 completed Japan’s first eVTOL point-to-point demo flight for air mobility in Oita City, Oita Prefecture, making a breakthrough in exploring UAM use cases in Japan. This year, EHang and its partner, MASC, revisited Oita to demonstrate the EH216’s first passenger-carrying autonomous flight within Japan, which is expected to further enhance the awareness and interest of UAM in the local community and accelerate the development of the Japanese UAM industry.

WiMi explores 6G holographic communication

WiMi Hologram Cloud Inc. has announced an in-depth study on the integration of edge computing, robotics, artificial intelligence, digital holography, and 6G communications using 6G high-speed broadband networks in combination with its self-developed multi-dimensional holographic vision mapping technology. The holographic communication service is a holistic application solution for the acquisition, encoding, transmission, rendering, and display of data from highly immersive, multi-dimensional interactive application scenes based on naked-eye holographic technology, encompassing the entire end-to-end process from data acquisition to multi-dimensional sensory data restoration, and is a highly immersive, highly natural interactive business form.

Nokia and Bosch set a new bar for 5G positioning

Nokia and Bosch have jointly developed 5G-based precision positioning technology intended for new Industry 4.0 use cases. The two have deployed the proof of concept in a Bosch production plant in Germany, where extensive tests under realistic manufacturing conditions have shown an accuracy within 50 cm in 90 percent of the factory footprint. The positioning technology tracks mobile and portable devices connected to the 5G network, accurately determining their positions where no global navigation satellite service coverage is available, for instance in factories, warehouses or underground facilities. As part of the factory test, an enhanced private 5G network was able to determine the precise position of assets such as automated guided vehicles (AGVs), mobile robots and mobile control panels – tracking their movements throughout the plant in real time.
