Case Study: 5G Autonomous Drones – Rising to the Connectivity Challenge image

With the help of artificial intelligence (AI), drones could take on many manual and repetitive tasks. Giving drones (and other robots) access to AI is getting
easier thanks to 5G: By providing ultra-low latency and high-bandwidth connectivity, 5G enables much of the necessary computing to be performed in a nearby edge
computing facility. That means the drone itself can be lightweight, compact and agile.

This trial by Telefónica and Unmanned Life, (part of the 5G Autonomous Drones Foundry Project), shows how 5G can enable autonomous drones to operate safely
and efficiently.
