Orange, Arbórea Intellbird, Red Eléctrica de España and Elewit are developing a pilot with 5G technology with the aim of making the use of robots and drones available to users to inspect substations and lines.
In this pilot, the possibilities offered by real-time data communication through 5G broadband, in aircraft and robots, for the transmission of data that allow improving the management of critical industrial assets can be tested. The pilot is mainly focused on reducing the response time in accidents or serious situations and on sending information in an optimized and structured way, which facilitates predictive maintenance processes.
The aircraft used are kept under continuous remote monitoring in airspace, thanks to the 5G band.
Infrastructure inspection can be carried out from remote locations through 5G, obtaining high-resolution images in real time.
