5G!Drones – Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Vertical Applications’ Trials Leveraging Advanced 5G Facilities

5G network infrastructures are key in the digitalisation of economy and society, impacting several sectors. Deploying 5G for vertical markets in Europe has put pressure on network resources and posed challenges. The 5G!Drones project will run trials on several unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to prove that 5G infrastructure can support the simultaneous running of three types of UAV services, using network slicing. Running independently and simultaneously, each UAV application will not interfere with the performance of other applications. The UAV association will then be able to use the 5G!Drones results to improve 5G services.
