Vodafone sets up dynamic drone no-fly zones in Spain trial

Friday 14 June 2019 | 11:16 CET | News
Vodafone announced that it's the first company in the world to show how mobile technology can be used to prevent drones interfering with high security areas, crime scenes, major incidents and events in future. At a recent trial conducted at ATLAS (Air Traffic Laboratory for Advanced Unmanned Systems) dedicated test flight facility in Jaen, Spain, the operator said it was able to demonstrate that a geo-fence can be generated and erased dynamically using the Vodafone Radio Positioning System (RPS) to identify when a drone has entered the area.
