CAFA Tech conducted 2 initial field trials with DJI Mavic Pro drone and 5G smartphones, testing 5G aspects that will be used in 5G!Drones use cases. In specific, CAFA Tech conducted tests with DJI Mavic Pro drone and 5G smartphones on 24th October 2019 in Aalto University, Helsinki, Finland. Measured Results: Stream upload: 21 Mbps and Ping: 11 ms. In addition, CAFA Tech conducted also 5G drone test flight on 1st of November 2019, in Tallinn, Estonia, at Elisa (telecom operator) 5G NSA test network using the 5G smartphone Huawei Mate 20X. Measured results: Upstream throughput: 25-47 Mbps and Ping: 8-10 ms
Next trials will involve:
- Test UTM system with 5G drone. I hope we can cooperate with DRR and FRQ.
- Use GPS RTK solution for 5G smartphone to provide drone position accuracy max 25cm.
- Use slice- drone and laptop/server all communication process in the 5G test network. Test 5G Drone and laptop with 5G modem.
