77) The author believes this, along with the term telesurgery, is how the term is currently used with respect to remote surgery
where the patient and surgeon are really in different places and not just separated by a few feet in the operating room.

Advances in network capacity through photonics will enable instant availability of whole libraries of information, high-definition video on demand, three-dimensional multi-sensory displays and real-time 'telepresence' by which people can immerse themselves in distant environments for remote surgery
Other applications can include remote control of heavy machinery in hazardous environments, and remote surgery
Developing such a unified communication-control framework can allow for a myriad of new exciting possibilities, such as remote surgery
and self-driving cars, and is the aim of this research.
Valter D'Avino, Head of Ericsson Western & Central Europe, said: "Through this 5G simulation demonstration we can show how latency is a critical part of what 5G can deliver, bringing both the sense of touch and an essential real-time video feed to remote surgery
Arun Bansal, Senior Vice President and Head of Business Unit Radio, Ericsson, says: "5G will be driven by new use cases requiring higher performance - from connected cars with perfect driving records, to immersive augmented reality for remote surgery
, to multi-K movies on mobile devices.
It will be key in the development of the internet of things (IoT), enabling new applications for smart vehicles and transport architecture, remote control of heavy machinery in hazardous environments, remote surgery
and new levels of human-IoT interaction including immersive augmented reality and immersive gaming.
