WM5G & GoMedia – 5G-Connected Tram

Working with West Midlands Metro and GoMedia, WM5G is exploring how 5G-connected trams can create new possibilities for the region’s public transport.

Trams collect a variety of valuable information. This includes both CCTV footage and tram performance and maintenance data. Currently, this information is accessed and downloaded manually, outside the hours of operation.

To hasten this process, we equipped a WM Metro tram with a 5G kit from Icomera. 5G’s low latency allows for the high-definition CCTV footage captured by the tram to be securely and remotely transferred to the Regional Traffic Control Centre and British Transport Police in real time. This ability to transmit high levels of data almost instantaneously unlocks incredible opportunities to improve passenger safety – but also to improve the maintenance of key public transport routes.

In the future, entire networks of trams could be equipped with 5G-enabled sensors to help engineers identify, maintain and service carriages and vital infrastructure. This will make the upkeep of the network more innate and cost effective.

Looking forward, passengers will also be able to enjoy real-time travel information, on-board entertainment and a much safer and more reliable service.
