Ericsson and AERPAW collaborate on 5G drone research to support smart agriculture

AERPAW drone footage of agriculture fields streamed over Ericsson 5G network

In a demonstration hosted at North Carolina State University, the AERPAW team, part of the Platforms for Advanced Wireless Research (PAWR) program, equipped a custom drone with a connected camera and local compute capacity in order to monitor cattle in a remote field for information on grazing patterns. Footage from the remote field was streamed over a 5G connection enabled by an Ericsson base station and 5G NSA core. The demonstration took place on the 3.4 gigahertz band with available uplink speeds measured at over 100 Megabits per second, and downlink speeds exceeding 450 Megabits per second.
