A new decade is approaching, and with it, the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games arrive, a great sporting event in the capital of the Japanese country, a host that promises a technological deployment that will leave millions of users dazzled.

It has been shown that major events, such as the World Cup, bring technological advances. To exemplify it, when there was the launch of the new generation consoles, high definition equipment became popular. It is no secret to anyone that this city stands out for its advanced technology, but it is important to have an idea of the trends that will govern the next year.

5G

The 5G connectivity trend is in process and, although different licenses are still needed to implement a massive network, Japan will likely start selling exclusive models with this type of technology next summer.

This is because the number of visitors expected to receive will require greater reach; therefore, a greater amplitude in the nodes will be required.

At the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, 4K TVs became fashionable. Many people were proud to have one of these devices to have a better experience as a viewer; however, many platforms began to test this resolution.

In 2020 there will be a television standard in 4K, but the first broadcasts in 8K are going to be tested. This implies multiplying by 16 the Full HD pixels. It is planned that the devices with this resolution will begin to be marketed in the market this year.

Autonomous vehicles and taxis

Japan is a country characterized by innovation and by being open to technology; many new projects are continually emerging.

Autonomous cars will ascend to another level. Currently, there have been tests where the Japanese use autonomous taxi vehicles that can be controlled through a smartphone capable of taking you to the supermarket or home.

In 2017, autonomous taxis were regulated by the government. It is expected that in the Olympics, electric cars will be more accessible to visitors and be much cheaper with a combustion engine.

Tokyo is a modern city; it has all the ideal conditions to start with this trend and with even faster trains. In the country, there are the fastest trains in the world and a high-speed rail network since 1964.

Coincidentally, improvement will coincide with the Olympic Games this year. If the calculations are correct, in 2020 there will be an evolution of the maglev: trains known for using magnetic levitation, which have the world speed record 601 km per hour. According to rumors, next year the new line will reach Tokyo.

New sources of energy for the city and transport

Japan is always looking for new energy sources. At the moment, algae-based projects are being executed, a natural resource from which fuel is obtained, and even this resource reduces carbon dioxide emissions by up to 70%.

The government and other very important entities in Tokyo are focused on developing biofuel projects so that obtaining these resources is more economical. In terms of urban transport, it is planned to use 100 buses powered by a fuel battery and a fleet of 6,000 vehicles for the transport of millions of visitors.
