Vodafone Spain runs 5G drone-based healthcare trial

Monday 28 September 2020 | 08:56 CET | News
Vodafone Spain has used its 5G network to carry out a demonstration of how a drone equipped with a defibrillator can provide urgent health care up to four times faster than an ambulance. The test conducted at the Atlas Experimental Flight Centre in Villacarrillo (Jaen) proved that unmanned 5G drones can carry emergency material such as defibrillators for up to 10 kilometers without having to overcome geographical or urban barriers, considerably increasing the possibility that a person will survive a cardiac arrest.
