On the 25th of this month KT connected its 5G network to B;eat, an autonomous robot cafe located in Samsung Life Insurance building in downtown Gangnam, Seoul.
B;eat is a robot cafe under the coffee brand dal.komm coffee. Barista robots take orders and receive commands from 5G MHS (Mobile Hot Spot), which receives signals directly from 5G base stations without a wired internet connection.
The 5G network installed in the robot cafe recognizes visitors through mounted CCTVs which transmit video to managers that oversee the process.
“The 5G Barista Cafe Beat is the world’s first 5G robot cafe to offer real-life services to customers in downtown Gangnam, Seoul. Also KT is going to introduce 5G services and contents that are different in dimension through differentiated technology.”
Park Hyun-jin, head of KT’s 5G business
