It is the first time in the world that 5G technology has been applied on railway locomotives, which is of great significance for improving the efficiency of locomotive data dumping, as well as accelerating the development of railway science and technology.

With the application of Huawei's "AirFlash" 5G high-speed data dump and AI smart analysis solution, 30 gigabytes of video data can be automatically dumped in about three minutes without manual intervention, which is 13 times more efficient than previous methods.

In terms of security, the data is automatically encrypted and transmitted without risk of virus infection, ensuring complete and secure data throughout the data dump process.
