5GIoTRail: Smart Transportation with 5G

High-speed railways are suitable for the transportation of both passenger and freight in high volume with short travel times. However, as train speed increases, 5G signal quality degrades, and 5G data rate and reliability decrease. To solve the problems, an enhanced 5G radio design is proposed to detect and cancel interference that arises in high-speed railway communications, and a simplified 5G radio design for high-speed railway Internet of Things (IoT) communications is adopted.

This invention not only enables reliable 5G communications in high-speed railway use cases especially critical control/emergency communications, but also enables cost effective IoT communications in high-speed railway for safety monitoring and commercial applications.
