KT has successfully tested an autonomous bus for use in South Korea's airport, the company announced.
The telecommunications carrier said its driverless bus covered 2.2 kilometres at a speed of 30 kilometres per hour outside Incheon International Airport's Terminal 1.
The bus slowed down at traffic lights and changed lanes to avoid obstacles, the company said, and was inspected by airport employees and those from South Korea's Transportation Ministry during the test.
The test was part of KT and the airport's collaboration to develop an 'intelligent' airport, the company said.
The two will continue to collaborate further in the areas of 5G, artificial intelligence, big data and Internet of Things, KT said.
KT has dubbed the technology 5G as a Vehicle Platform. It also plans to apply its AI platform Giga in self-driving cars, called Giga Drive IVI (in-vehicles infotainment).
