KPN conducts 5G test for precision agriculture

Thursday 4 October 2018 | 15:09 CET | News
KPN said it has successfully tested the first 5G application for precision agriculture on a test farm at a Wageningen University site in Valthermond, Drenthe. During the test, a camera drone was used to take very accurate images of a field for potato cultivation. The images were processed and sent to an agricultural machine via an LTE mobile connection with "5G characteristics," KPN said. The machine was then able to apply crop protection in a very precise way and almost in real time. Normally, the process takes about two days. With the 5G Fieldlab, it was reduced to two hours.
