A multi-layered cloud-edge collaboration system architecture has been implemented to realize in-depth interaction. But also online data sharing between people, vehicles, operating environments, devices and dispatching. They have thus implemented multiple scenario-based applications such as 5G smart stations, 5G train-to-ground communication and 5G digital tunnels.
Thanks to these implementations and innovations, the Guangzhou Metro has seen an improvement in automated operations and maintenance over the past two years. It has also seen more efficient handling and dispatching, and increased passenger satisfaction.
