Verification of the driver's identity


KT is currently providing the world's first 5G trial services in PyeongChang. Inside the "5G Connected Bus," a 5G-connected promotional vehicle operated by KT, NEC conducted demonstrations in which the identity of the driver was verified before the bus started moving through the use of a hearable device (wireless earphone) equipped with otoacoustic authentication technology that utilizes the resonation of sound in ear cavities to identify individuals.
