5G underwater drone Back to Exhibitor Page
An immersive tour of Valencia’s aquarium from Barcelona
Orange Spain will control a Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) submerged in the largest tank in the Oceanogràfic aquarium (in Valencia) from the stand at MWC, thanks to 5G’s ultra-reliable low latency and superfast mobile broadband.
A user, located on the Orange stand, more than 400 km away from Oceanogràfic, will remotely control the underwater drone using hand movements. These hand movements, converted into signals and sent to the drone in real time via the 5G network, will control and drive the drone inside the aquarium. Images captured by the drone’s HD camera will be transmitted live to the Orange stand through 5G connectivity, where they will be projected to the audience on a large screen for an immersive tour of the aquarium all the way from the Fira in Barcelona.
