Getting ready for the 5G!DRONES project (H2020-ICT-2018-2020)! It begins on 1st of June 2019 and it will run for 36 months. 20 European partners from 8 EU countries represent an excellent mixture of industrial and academic profiles from all over Europe, covering Verticals, Commercial Network Operators, Networking industry, SMEs, EU Research Centers and Universities.
5G!DRONES aim is to trial several UAV use-cases covering eMBB, URLLC, and mMTC 5G services, and to validate 5G KPIs for supporting such challenging use-cases. The project will drive the UAV verticals and 5G networks to a win-win position, on one hand by showing that 5G is able to guarantee UAV vertical KPIs, and on the other hand by demonstrating that 5G can support challenging use-cases that put pressure on network resources, such as low-latency and reliable communication, massive number of connections and high bandwidth requirements, simultaneously. 5G!DRONES will build on top of the 5G facilities provided by the ICT-17 projects and a number of support sites, while identifying and developing the missing components to trial UAV use-cases.
