Xiaomi posted a video on Chinese social media where the Mi 10 Ultra is used to remotely control a car. The driver was located more than 3000 kilometers away from the vehicle. The connection is made in 5G with a latency time announced by the mark of 1 ms.
On August 11, Xiaomi formalized its latest flagship, the Mi 10 Ultra. A launch marred by a leak that revealed, a day before, everything there was to know about mobile. The leaker at the origin of this leak risks a heavy fine. a million dollars. However, this communication problem does not detract from the qualities of the flagship, whose technical sheet is very attractive.

You will find a Snapdragon 865 from Qualcomm, up to 16 GB of RAM, 512 GB of maximum storage, a large 6.67-inch Full HD AMOLED display (refresh rate of 120 Hz), a quadruple photo sensor 48 + 48 + 12 + 20 megapixels, a large 4500 mAh battery and many premium services (underscreen fingerprint reader, wireless charging, 5x optical zoom, etc.). The smartphone is obviously 5G compatible. It works with NSA (Non Stand Alone) or SA (Stand Alone) networks.
Low enough latency to drive a car
These are entirely designed to operate in 5G, unlike NSA networks where 5G and 4G elements coexist. The promise of a Very fast 5G with very low latency (less than a millisecond, promise of very high responsiveness) obviously concerns SA networks. To prove this, Xiaomi made a marketing film which aired this weekend on Chinese social networks.
In this sequence, which lasts 140 seconds, you find a circuit where two almost identical cars are propelled. The pilot of the first is behind the wheel, normal. That of the second is 2000 miles away, or 3,200 kilometers. The second vehicle has been prepared to be fully remote-controlled from a smartphone, here the Mi 10 Ultra. A camera on the hood allows the image to be broadcast live on a large screen. 5G technology connects the driver and his car.
Like a fairy tale, the story ends with the victory of the remote control car. You can't tell right from wrong in this footage, but of course we hope it's not all about the image and the majority of the material filmed here is true. Remember, for our Western readers, that Xiaomi has not (yet?) Planned to launch the Mi 10 Ultra in our regions.
