LANGKAWI, Jan 21 -- Altel Holdings Sdn Bhd, which is part of the AlBukhary Group of Companies and Tradewinds Corp, is showcasing its 5G-powered four-seater autonomous shuttle at the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission’s (MCMC) 5G Demonstration Project (5GDP) here.
In a statement today, Altel said it would utilise Tradewinds’ Pelangi Beach Resort & Spa as the site for tourists and guests to experience the autonomous shuttle.
This project was made possible through Altel’s partnership with MooVita, a high-tech start-up specialised in providing ‘vehicle agnostic’ driverless software solutions for an urban environment.
“The autonomous technology is to play a role in transporting humans, objects, and improving security efficiency.
“We envision its usage in any industry that requires freight and logistics, places of interest and educational facilities,” said Altel group chief operating officer Akmal Fadzil.
Under the project, Altel provides 5G connectivity via an industry collaboration with Telekom Malaysia Bhd to enable MooVita to develop a future towards safer work surroundings and a cleaner environment.
Altel provides mobile and network solutions using wireless technology and operates as a Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO).
Tradewinds group chief executive officer and managing director Muhammad Zainal Ashikin said the company sees a brighter future with a safer, greener and more efficient work environment
“The rise of 5G and autonomous technology will revolutionise Malaysia. We look forward to rolling out solutions to create unique experiences, and enhancing our guest experience in all our properties,” he said.
The autonomous technology transmits data through 5G and navigates through routes and avoids obstacles using light detection and ranging sensors developed by Pioneer Smart Sensing Innovations Corp.
