A few days ago, Orange inaugurated its 5G Lab in Toulouse, France. The objective of the group is to co-develop with local companies, services and innovations that will include 5G technology.
The Orange 5G Lab is above all a test and reflection area for companies that want to integrate 5G into their technology and services.
Kawantech is developing a sensor that analyses the data received by a street lamp. The first step is to make lighting intelligent, by allowing real-time regulation of public lighting according to the activity in the street. By lighting only when necessary, energy savings of over 65% can be achieved.
Today, this technology is being made available to future connected and autonomous vehicles, which need to receive additional information about their environment: a vehicle has broken down several cars ahead, a pedestrian is hidden behind the bus I am preparing to overtake, etc. In partnership with Orange, Kawantech is adapting its technology to intelligent mobility. 5G will have a major role in its development.
