“It is a fantastic and very interesting initiative.” These were the words of the Vice President of the Government and Minister of Economic Affairs and Digital Transformation, Nadia Calviño, after learning about the leisure and tourism project carried out through 5G technology and in which Orange and Levante-EMV participate.
Vice President Calviño yesterday visited the experience tent of this use case located in La Marina de València and also the adjoining La Base venue on the occasion of the 5G València Pilots Demo day. During the visit, the innovation consultant for the project carried out by the Visyon company, Emili Blanque, showed the vice president how the application works and explained some of its advantages. “5G technology allows the application to be updated directly if there are any changes,” said Blanque. In this sense, he explained that all graphic and audiovisual documents were stored in a cloud and, therefore, can be updated directly “quickly and without having to make further changes.”
Orange also presented other of its cases, among which is remote inspection and maintenance with robots, through which electrical and railway infrastructures can be studied thanks to the 5G network, which implies a high capacity for transmission of information with high quality images and ultra low latency. A robotic arm could also be observed, which will help the Valencian Institute of Oncology in the detection of skin cancer remotely through multispectral images processed with technology. A solution with drones and sensors that optimize irrigation, analyze water quality and monitor the status of the crop in real time was also exhibited.
The Minister of Innovation, Carolina Pascual, was in charge of opening the exhibition, in which the general director of Orange companies, Joaquín Colino, and the president of the UTE that developed the use cases, Silvia Bruno, were present.
