In a TEDx talk on the future of communications, NYU Wireless’s Marco Mezzavilla explained the history and state of 5G cellular technology yesterday.

“In 5G there will be new players connecting wirelessly,” Mezzavilla said. “Sensors, for example, in the smart society concept, also known as the Massive Internet of Things. In the future smart city we might have a lot of sensors used to measure water, energy … cars will wirelessly connect to each other and to the internet and realize the fully driverless car paradigm.”

The NYU Wireless program has been leading the nation on the work of creating 5G. This past summer, professor Ted Rappaport successfully tested 5G technology in rural Virginia with his students.
