[Digital Today Reporter Baek Yeon-sik] The entrance to T.um located on the 1st floor of SK Telecom’s Euljiro headquarters in Seoul. Two giant robotic arms move freely above the entrance that looks like a subway gate. At the end of the robot arm, each has a large display. The image flows from a display called’Robogate’. “Good morning? After a while, you will tour Highland, the future city.” Passing through the Robogate, you can leave for the future city of 2051,’Highland,’ located in space and under the sea. It feels like you’ve come to the real scene. On the 14th, I tried Tium online.
First, board the’Hyper Loop’, a future transportation method. Hyperloop is a future transportation method that runs at 1300 km/h. “SKT is conducting research on a super-high-speed network that can be used seamlessly even in such a fast transportation mode.” After the guide explains, the hyperloop slowly enters through the transparent screen door.
Two transparent displays are placed inside the hyperloop. Various figures and graphs are displayed. Beyond the display is a huge front screen. It is a window from which you can see the scenery outside. The artificial intelligence captain begins to guide the travel route. “After passing through the city where desertification and flooding took place, we will move to the Spaceship and the Space Control Center after docking.” When the guide asks about the weather in space, the AI captain kindly gives the answer.
Hyperloop departs and passes through desert and flooded city landscapes. After a while, Hyperloop arrives at the docking area and docks with the spacecraft. The spacecraft soars into the sky and enters outer space, then heads to the space control center, avoiding numerous meteorites. Currently, SK Telecom is applying various types of artificial intelligence services such as upgrading the voice recognition artificial intelligence platform’who’, as well as installing’who’ on the mobile navigation’T Map’. I was able to experience the service that applied anyone.
Arrive at the Space Control Center and get off at Hyperloop. The door is opened when the guide recognizes the face of the security system located at the entrance of the space control center. Upon entering, a circular space control center with large displays scattered appears. The’Captain’ in uniform greets the visitor. “You will be monitoring the space environment, the global environment, and the global ecosystem here using high-speed network technology and artificial intelligence.”
Global environmental monitoring was accomplished by ▲ receiving images taken from thousands of satellites floating on the earth through a high-speed network ▲ and analyzing the collected information by radiating various IoT sensors inside the tornado or installing it at sea and land. It is possible to collect a lot of information in real time through various IoT sensors and use it through big data analysis. SK Telecom is currently showing smart factory solutions using IoT devices. I could get a glimpse of the technology for this.
Space environment monitoring is conducted using a probe. The probe is exploring space through artificial intelligence-based autonomous flight technology. It shoots ultra-high-definition images and transmits them in real time over a high-speed network from billions of kilometers away in space. It collects vast amounts of big data to predict supernova explosions and the like. The captain says looking at the video of the probe that is monitoring the asteroid belt. “A huge debris from recent asteroid impacts is heading towards Earth. Soon there will be an emergency response meeting for each regional alliance in Highland, and the expeditions will also attend.”
We must return to Earth to solve the crisis of asteroid impact. Going to board the space shuttle to return to Earth. Board the space shuttle. Again, the artificial intelligence captain begins the guidance. The landscape of the universe can be seen on the display elongated from side to side. Soon after, the Earth appeared. On his way back to Earth, he encountered a tornado and a victim occurred.
The AI captain dispatched the rescue drone. Check the site situation through an augmented reality (AR) device. When the augmented reality device was put on, the rescue site unfolded. It is a crisis situation. It is said that the life gauge of the survival capsule is falling. Through a detailed scan, the rescue begins to find a victim within a kilometer distance.
The victim was rescued safely. Following the instructions, “I will move to the infirmary within the space shuttle to check the status of the victims,” this time headed to the infirmary. The high-speed network and real-time video broadcasting technology of drones can be used for disaster relief. SK Telecom is applying a 5G-based live video broadcast system called T Livecaster to patrol cars and drones. This technology is embedded in a rescue drone.
Upon entering the infirmary, the victim is lying in a medical capsule. The guide asked the AI doctor about the patient’s condition. Patient diagnosis information floats on the transparent display covered with the medical capsule along with the explanation of the artificial intelligence doctor. “The left knee has a fracture.” After making an artificial bone with a 3D medical printer, an artificial bone graft is performed.
The guide is a sensory transmission device using sensory communication to directly perform artificial bone graft surgery. Hold the sensory transmission device with your hand and manipulate the surgical tools on the screen. The weight of the bone fragments as well as the vibrations that scrape the bone fragments are transmitted to the fingertips intact. The operation ended successfully.
We finally arrive at Highland Undersea City. There is a holographic conference room in the submarine city, and the World Regional Alliance is currently discussing ways to deal with giant meteorites falling to Earth. Upon arriving at the Highland Hologram conference room, the sound of an impending meeting is heard. “We’re already calculating the path of the meteorite through our own satellite network. Combining the resources of the Asian Union and our intelligence will be enough to stop the meteorite.”
At the hologram conference implemented with holographic media technology, the results of discussions from representatives of each regional alliance appearing in 3D images are presented. It is said to operate the gravitational field through a remote robot. Go to the teleport room to perform the mission.
Teleport Room realizes a metaverse that realistically recognizes a three-dimensional space through SK Telecom’s proprietary mixed reality (MR) technology. In addition, you can see the video in 360 degrees by moving directly through the controller and simulator, so it feels as vivid as reality. In order to generate the gravitational field, it performs various tasks such as moving the remote robot in the metaverse and pressing the lever. When the gravitational field generator is activated, the meteorite’s path can be changed to protect the Earth.
Finally, board the flight shuttle. Again, the artificial intelligence captain announces the departure. It is fun to fly over cities implemented with smart city technologies such as autonomous vehicles, construction robots, solar power generation facilities, and urban agriculture. As I looked around the city, the tour was over.
It was an event provided online to reporters due to Corona 19, but it was provided from a first-person view, so I felt as if I was at the scene. If there was time, it would be a good experience to visit the T Tower and experience Tium in person.
