5G technology will bring a revolution in the country, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said in the 6th edition India Mobile Congress 2022 in New Delhi on Saturday. Experts believe that 5G technology has revolutionized healthcare, education, agriculture and natural disaster monitoring, even the growing drone industry.

In addition to consumer applications, businesses and the public sector have used drones in a variety of ways since they first took to the skies, including to assist in search and rescue missions, facilitate infrastructure inspections and medical delivery, and improve access to healthcare. assistance in remote settlements.

Vishal Saurav, CEO and founder of VFLYX India, told News18 that one of the prominent drone manufacturing companies has said that 5G technology will transform the network connectivity between systems and drones.

He said it is a fact that every drone requires commands from operators or pilots to function properly; especially if we expect them to respond to environmental changes.

“If you take the example of a drone that is hovering over the border and suddenly determines that a person with a gun is trying to shoot it down. It must take evasive action and these actions are initiated by the operators. If there is a delay in sending orders, the asset may be lost,” he noted.

Thus, Sourav said he believes that 5G technology will help overcome this problem by reducing transmission and processing times.

“With extreme speed, we can control the drone in real time and keep it running efficiently,” he added.

He also said that streaming live video surveillance with lower latency will also be an added advantage as 5G helps several key sectors such as military, transport and weather.

Agendra Kumar, MD at Esri India, also said that he believes 5G will give a huge boost to the drone industry in India.

5G promises better connectivity, faster speeds, lower latency, more bandwidth, greater coverage and increased reliability, Kumar said. “5G is expected to enable faster uploading of data from the field to cloud-based drone mapping platforms such as Esri India’s Site Scan. This will improve the efficiency of image data collection, processing and analysis.”

Not only that, the “5G-enabled drone ecosystem” will open up new opportunities, especially in areas such as disaster response, rescue and relief, forest firefighting and conservation, among others, enabling better surveillance, monitoring in live , and updates in real time, he explained.

He further said that the introduction of 5G, coupled with strategic government interventions such as the New Drone Regulations 2021, developments in the Production Linked Incentive (PLI) for drones, the Digital Sky Platform and the Geospatial Data Guide 2021, will usher in a new an era of opportunity for innovation in drone technology in India.
