Percepto uses 5G network to fly autonomous drones
Autonomous drones have successfully been flown by Percepto over SK Telecom’s 5G trial network.
SK Telecom is the largest mobile operator in Korea and commercialised its 5G network in December 2018.
Dain SNT, Percepto’s representative in Korea, has been collaborating with SK Telecom to apply Percepto’s solutions to SK Telecom’s commercial 5G network.
Percepto is a drone-in-a-box (DIB) solution that provides a range of communications schemes to its global customers. It also offers autonomous flights over cellular networks. This milestone prepares Percepto to provide its customers with significant operational advantages including better real-time video stream quality; reduced battery consumption, which means longer mission times; and greater distances and readiness for greater data processing in real time.
Earlier this year Percepto was recognised by Frost & Sullivan for its onboard computing processing capabilities, allowing Percepto to conduct real-time analytics. Supported by 5G networks, Percepto users are more likely to gain faster and more accurate aerial insights.
“We are proud to have been selected by SK Telecom to demonstrate the potential of both 5G and autonomous drones,” said Percepto Chief Executive Officer Dor Abuahsira.
