5G and eye-tracking enabling mobile VR

How do we cope with the anticipated huge demands on bandwidth and device computational power coming from high-quality virtual reality as video resolutions grow higher and higher? Researchers from Ericsson Research, the Royal Institute of Technology KTH, Stockholm, Sweden, and Tobii have demonstrated how bandwidth and device computational requirements can be dramatically reduced by using smart eye-tracking combined with low-latency 5G networks and distributed cloud. This allows network service providers to provide excellent experiences at a fraction of the network burden.
