Qualcomm test proved that 4G signals can control unmanned aerial vehicles

05 May 2017 - Qualcomm
The wave of unmanned aerial vehicles swept the world, although the short-range control of unmanned aerial vehicles have no obstacles, but long-distance remote control is still a technical problem. According to the latest news of foreign media, the United States Qualcomm has announced that after several tests proved that the use of mobile base station signals to remotely control the UAV is entirely feasible, through this means of communication, UAV can also keep the network online at any time.

According to the US science and technology news website Engadget reported that all walks of life are in the development of UAV wide range of applications, including UAV farther and farther away, has long been breaking people's line of sight, this time for the implementation of accurate UAV Control becomes a problem.

Theoretically, mobile base stations can provide long-range means of communication, but this requires rigorous testing. Qualcomm recently issued a report, allegedly through more than 1,000 flight tests proved that the use of mobile 4G network can accurately control the UAV.

Test proved that even in the 122 meters high altitude, UAV still can get a strong mobile base station signal, the other mobile base station large-scale construction, but also to support the UAV in a wider range of control.

Qualcomm's test report also pointed out that, in fact, UAV and mobile base station communications in some areas even better than smart phones, the switch mobile base station frequency is lower than the phone.

Qualcomm is the world's top mobile communications technology developers, holding a large number of 3G, 4G communications patented technology, patent licensing as Qualcomm an important business model. If the future to ensure that unmanned aerial vehicles and mobile base station communications, will further enhance the use of mobile communications, enhance the value of Qualcomm.

Qualcomm also said that in the UAV mobile communications also need to upgrade some of the technology, such as a certain height to reduce communication interference, and by optimizing the ground to a mobile base station to support more unmanned aerial vehicle communications.

It is reported that Qualcomm has been to some other communications standards organizations to share the results of this test is expected soon after, there will be some UAV manufacturers in the product implanted SIM card, through mobile communications control.

UAV connected to the base station, which will open up a huge application space, UAVs in the flight process to keep online at any time, allowing courier companies and other UAV users to complete a variety of rich application functions. For example, television media can use the UAV to provide live video service.

In addition to mobile communications technology research and development, Qualcomm is the world's largest application processor manufacturers, the company is also vigorously open up the UAV chip market, before Qualcomm has launched a UAV-oriented chip platform, in Xiaolong chip Based on the integration of other flight control chip, packaged to the UAV manufacturer.

It has also been reported that Intel has also worked with AT & T, the nation's second-largest mobile operator, to test the use of 4G networks for unmanned aerial communications.

In some mobile communications-intensive areas, as long as the unmanned aerial vehicle to solve the power supply problem, 4G remote control will ensure that UAV can fly farther away, and further develop the application of functional space.

In addition, the United States announced before the UAV regulatory policy prohibits unmanned aerial vehicles flying outside the visual distance, but this provision led to many manufacturers of dissatisfaction, especially Amazon and other courier unmanned aerial vehicles project, in the collection industry After the feedback, the US government is likely to remove the limits of sight within the flight
