Telefonica, Huawei using 5G drones to monitor rail tracks

Thursday 26 November 2020 | 09:48 CET | News
In Galicia, Telefonica is using drones from Ineco and mobile infrastructure from Huawei, combined with Oculus VR glasses and its own Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology to inspect railway infrastructure in the localities of Barra do Mino, Os Peares, Cortegada and Filgueira. The remote-controlled drones are equipped with high-resolution cameras and a 5G modem to gather real-time aerial footage that is immediately transferred to the control centres of Adif companies, allowing the railway operator to automate inspection processes.
