5G!Drones project finalized a set of trials at the 5GENESIS Athens platform at COSMOTE premises

On Wednesday 21st of October, 5G!Drones project finalized a set of trials at the 5GENESIS Athens platform at COSMOTE premises (Cosmote Academy) in Athens, Greece. The trials were executed using the Cosmote Edge server in the context of Use Case #4 (connectivity during crowded events). The main goal was to monitor the interoperability of drones and 5G under specific events. Many partners from 5GENESIS and 5G!Drones projects participated including NCSR “DEMOKRITOS”, COSMOTE and INFOLYSiS (from Greece), CAFA Tech (from Estonia), and robots.expert (from Finland). More information and videos will follow. Stay tuned!

Feasibility tests by 5G!Drones project at the Athens 5GENESIS platform

Feasibility tests were executed by 5G!Drones project at the Athens 5GENESIS platform (Municipal Stadium of Egaleo) for two consecutive days (19-20 Oct 2020). The trials main goal is to test the possibility of offering a better level of network services with drones under 5G and specifically to reduce dropped calls and degraded Internet connectivity during mass events. Many partners from 5GENESIS and 5G!Drones projects participated including NCSR “DEMOKRITOS”, COSMOTE, Municipality of Egaleo and INFOLYSiS (from Greece), Hepta Airborne and CAFA Tech (from Estonia), robots.expert (from Finland).

Video: Test flights of UAVs/Drones with C2 over 5G – 5GENESIS Athens Platform

Test flights of UAVs/Drones with C2 over 5G/5GENESIS Athens Platform took place at the end of May 2020. The video presents two flights of UAVs properly modified with C2 over 5G. The one flight is the result of the collaboration of 5G!Drones project with 5GENESIS, while the other flight is the preparation of the 5GENESIS showcasing event. Both flights refer to feasibility flights and testing of the 5G flight controller module/proper modification in order to allow the appropriate testings and experiments.
