Spring 2020 marked the first session of the UC Berkeley Sutardja Center of Entrepreneurship Innovation Engineering class. This semester, students created projects to utilize 5G networks. In partnership with GSMA, projects ranged from apps to enhance healthcare to drone technology to detect fires. Check out our project overviews here and dive deeper into projects below.

As of 2020, there are 8 billion mobile connections around the globe. The mobile traffic has increased to 40EB per month, doubling that of two years ago. To counter this challenge, the number of small base stations in the world will reach 12 million by 2025, 6.5 million of which will be 5G base stations. On one hand, customers need a more stable and faster mobile network connection; on the other hand, telecommunication operators need to improve network operations. Our project, 5G Coverage Dynamics, intends to bridge the gap between operators and customers by building AI tools to improve operational efficiency. An end-to-end system was built to collect network connection related data (motion, location, latency) from mobile devices.

As the population continues to rise, the waste we create grows exponentially. The core of waste management is the humble trash can. On college campuses and office campuses, people have neither the time nor the patience to deposit their trash in the right bin. Our product will eliminate both the time and the decision-making of this process. Our high-speed scanner allows users to scan their article of trash and then immediately notifies users which bin the trash should be deposited into. Furthermore, the bin keeps recycling facilities in the loop. In a protected system on the cloud, the data passing through the scanner will be uploaded to a website so that recycling facilities can obtain crucial data for each of their bins.
