How could 5G be used to benefit the environment?
Hosted by Shrewsbury Geospatial Group in collaboration with Wayra, this 2 hour workshop is suitable for businesses and individuals with an interest in 5G for environmental applications.
Although 5G has been around for a few years, the use cases or applications for environmental monitoring are still sparse compared with manufacturing or health. This workshop is an opportunity to introduce and expand your knowledge of 5G, hear from some 5G environmental case studies and stimulate discussion on its potential challenges, benefits and applications.
