One of NRG5 use cases is Predictive Maintenance of Energy Networks using (semi-)autonomous flying drones and 5G network technology. Instantiating NRG5 VNFs, the drones will be remotely controlled at the Mobidel Edge Cloud/Multi-RAT Edge Cloud (MEC) to follow the electricity lines and focus on the points of interest.


The videos below, created by TEISTE, demonstrate our vision of 5G enabled energy networks predictive maintenance.
