AGC, Ericsson and Domoco have achieved what is believed to be the world’s first 5G mobile telecommunications using antennas embedded in glass to transmit and receive 28 GHz radio signals.
SK telecom and Seoul metropolitan government plan to install 5G ADAS on 1600 buses and 100 taxis in Seoul, helping to create a real-time HD city map for use in autonomous vehicles.
Glass antenna technology was born in the USA in the 1970s, led by manufacturers of metal antennas. Foreseeing the importance of telematics in the auto industry at the time, AGC decided to develop its own glass antennas.
AGC Automotive Europe has partnered with XenomatiX, a leading provider of solid-state LiDAR (Light Detection And Ranging) technology, to build the next generation of integrated LiDAR sensors for ADAS and autonomous driving.
