GSMA INTERNET OF THINGS CASE STUDY: SEARCH AND RESCUE SUPPORTED BY DRONES ON A CELLULAR NETWORK
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) are already in use for a multitude of applications. The regulatory framework is presently still being shaped, and there remains some scepticism around their value and safety; however, use cases beyond the purely commercial, but which offer public value, can positively influence acceptance, and provide useful data for further development. Deutsche Telekom and the German Air Navigation partner DFS recently led a broad collaboration to demonstrate how UAVs can conduct search and rescue missions in difficult terrain. The project brought together the German Lifeguard Association for logistics, UAV manufacturer Microdrones which provided LTE connectivity, and the Braunschweig University of Technology provided image processing.
