5G Heads Up Helmet


Every year approx. 40 cyclists die on roads in Australia. This presentation will cover the behind the scenes work (and pitfalls) developing a prototype smart bike helmet to demonstrate the power of 5G mobile connectivity combined with AI/ML based cloud compute and a low latency V2X messaging platform. You will find out the various applications that Telstra Labs developed in partnership with Arenberg and how we even had a little help from cycling champion Anna Meares. Lastly we will give a glimpse into the future applications and solutions 5G will enable. (https://exchange.telstra.com.au/5g-is-giving-cyclists-the-ability-to-see-around-corners/
