Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Vertical Applications’ Trials Leveraging Advanced 5G Facilities 
(6/2019 – 5/2022)

Aim: The usage of drones to offer 5G services.

5G!DRONES aim is to trial several UAV use - cases covering eMBB, URLLC, and mMTC 5G services, and to validate 5G KPIs for supporting such challenging use- cases. Indicatively, the following use cases with multiple scenarios/applications will be developed and assessed:

  • UC1: UAV Traffic Management
  • UC2 : Public safety/saving lives
  • UC3: Situation awareness
  • UC4: Connectivity during crowded events
The project will feature network slicing as the key component to simultaneously run the three types of UAV services on the same 5G infrastructure, demonstrating that each UAV application runs independently and does not affect the performance of other UAV applications, while covering different 5G services.
