GSMA Mobile 360 LATAM Seminar: Connected Drones – Unlocking the possibilities in LATAM
*Please note – this event takes place on Mexico City’s time zone which is GMT-5
The connected drone market is one of the fastest growing and innovative sectors of the IoT and presents a huge commercial and strategic opportunity for operators and their technology partners. The growth potential of commercial drones is expected to increase, particularly when flights are safely managed for Beyond Visual Line Of Sight (BVLOS) and autonomously. This will help create a number of benefits for the economy, climate and society. For example, streamlined search & rescue operations, efficient asset inspection, disaster response, infrastructure monitoring and fast agricultural automation.
Join this one hour seminar for an introduction into the soaring possibilities presented by this relatively new industry. Established technology companies and mobile operators will share their experiences and lessons learned with real-life connected drone case studies.
