In Focus: Drones and next-generation networks

Researchers from CONNECT have partnered with Dense Air and Dublin City Council via the Smart Docklands initiative to investigate how the cellular network could be used to control aerial drones.

Take a look at this short video describing this research, which is conducted as part of the Satori project.

This research has been submitted for publication and is currently available as a pre-print article here, “Experimental Evaluation of a UAV User QoS from a Two-Tier 3.6GHz Spectrum Network”.

This work was supported by a research grant from Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) and the National Natural Science Foundation Of China (NSFC) under the SFI-NSFC Partnership Programme Grant Number 17/NSFC/5224.
