5G is a game changer for autonomous drones. In the current landscape, communications to your drone executing a critical mission may fail because of poor connectivity. When operating on a 5G network, a drone benefits from ultra-high reliability and low-latency connectivity. A 5G connection and open source CV/AI foundation alone are crucial for any state-of-the-art drone, but together, they bring reliable and powerful flight for autonomous drones everywhere.
