IIT Kharagpur Researchers Build 5G-equipped Drone For No Network Area
IIT Kharagpur researchers have devised 5G infrastructure-equipped drones, which can function as airborne mobile telecommunication towers. Capable to perform in zero network areas by switching the location, the drones can also yield rescue-based services by reaching out to survivors at a disaster-affected location in less time. They restore the services by relaying data to rescue servers located far away from the distress area. The researchers have submitted the plan to the Centre for its commercialization.
