Telia uses drone for remote forestry machine control via 5G

Nordic telco Telia and a number of partners used a drone with its own portable mobile base station to extend a 5G network to enable a forestry machine to be remotely controlled.

The test was carried out in a forest outside Västeras, central Sweden, as part of a research project involving Telia, Mittuniversitetet, Ericsson, Skogforsk, SCA, Volvo CE and Biometria, co-funded by Vinnova and the program for Advanced Digitalization.

The project was able to remotely control a timber loader at SCA’s Torsboda timber terminal outside Timrå in northern Sweden.
