Taking Logistics to New Heights: Deutsche Telekom Launches 5G-Connected Autonomous Drones Project

Get ready for the future of logistics, because Deutsche Telekom is taking it to the skies with their latest project! They’re partnering with the South Westphalia University of Applied Sciences and other regional partners to test autonomous delivery flights using 5G-connected parcel drones for their “Drone4Parcel5G” research project. This technology is expected to significantly reduce road traffic and delivery times, and we can’t wait to see it in action!

To make this possible, Deutsche Telekom has set up a special mobile 5G container in Rüthen, Soest district, providing the latest mobile communication standard throughout the project’s duration. This will allow researchers to test delivery drone flights in real conditions, and the drones will be able to transmit sensor, image, and flight data via the 5G campus network.

The project aims to develop a system for planning and movement control of parcel drones and will test delivery by drone for use cases in the pharmaceutical and industrial sectors. The project has received funding of €1.6m from the “5G.NRW” program of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia and will run until the end of 2023.

With 5G mobile communications, the project aims to bridge greater distances and enable the operation of transport drones without relying on traditional delivery routes. This opens up new possibilities for the logistics industry, and we’re excited to see where this technology will take us!
