IoT technology powers drones to deliver critical medical assets
KORE, a leader in Internet of Things (“IoT”) solutions and worldwide Connectivity-as-a-Service (“CaaS”), showcased the innovative enablement of IoT connectivity that is making it possible for Australian drone-powered logistics company Swoop Aero to transport COVID-19 vaccines into isolated areas of the world at Mobile World Congress Barcelona.
Swoop Aero’s air logistics solution enables the reliable transport of medical commodities, including early pathology samples, diagnosis kits, antiretroviral therapy medication and vitamins across Malawi, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Mozambique as well as Australia, the United Kingdom and the Pacific. korewireless.com
HERE, Vodafone and Porsche partnership
In the future, new technologies will be a key enabler to make unclear traffic situations safer. HERE Technologies, Vodafone and Porsche are working together to achieve this objective as part of a feasibility study. The aim of the study is to improve road safety with the help of 5G technology and highly precise, real-time identification and localization of hazardous traffic situations.
HERE Technologies, Porsche and Vodafone are trialling how 5G technology and highly precise location determination can improve traffic safety and reduce the number of road accidents in the future. The three companies are collaborating in the development of a real-time warning system so that vehicles and their drivers can receive hazard warnings directly, without any delay, and therefore be responded to immediately. At the Vodafone 5G Mobility Lab in Aldenhoven, the partners are testing the real-time warning system under conditions, similar to everyday situations, for the first time.
Above all, the focus is on hazardous situations that are not visible or difficult to see for vehicle drivers, such as when the view is blocked by the traffic ahead. Captured by camera and sensor systems, using artificial intelligence and precisely localized with high-definition map and positioning technology, the data determined will be processed and evaluated directly on the roadside and on the edge of the network through Multiaccess Edge Computing (MEC). In the form of dedicated alerts using 5G mobile network technology and an intelligent MQTT message broker, the data can then be transmitted without delay to road users travelling towards the hazard.
To detect dangerous situations ahead, the Live Sense SDK from HERE Technologies is used alongside HD maps and positioning technology. Integrated into consumer devices with front-facing cameras, this system uses computer vision and artificial intelligence to identify objects and changes in the behaviour of other road users or road conditions that could lead to hazardous situations. Based on this information, Live Sense SDK generates real-time hazard warnings for drivers. https://newsroom.porsche.com
Salesforce Maps integrates Smarter AI Dashcams
Smarter AI has announced an agreement with Salesforce Maps to integrate Smarter AI Dashcams to increase efficiency and regulatory compliance for enterprise vehicle fleets. Regulations, including the US SAFE Act 2021 and EU Regulation 2019/2144, and the growth in e-commerce are bringing more technology into commercial vehicle fleets. A recent report by ABI Research stated that AI video telematics, driven by these factors, is projected to grow 29% annually until reaching $8 billion in 2026.
Smarter AI Dashcams enable programmable AI, including distracted driving, forward collision, and lane departure warnings, and are supported by the AI Store™, Smarter AI’s growing ecosystem of AI models and developers. Salesforce Maps is a location-based intelligence tool, built for global enterprise-level teams, designed to optimize sales processes and territory management. https://smarterai.camera

Rohde & Schwarz and Quectel cooperation
Rohde & Schwarz in partnership with Quectel announces the verification of selected 3GPP test cases based on a system with its R&S CMW500 wideband radio communication tester against a Quectel AG15 C-V2X module.
Cellular-V2X (C-V2X) is a key technology, which will improve road safety and accelerate autonomous driving in the coming years. Specifically, the C-V2X PC5 interface, operating in the 5.9 GHz frequency enables direct, reliable, low latency communication between vehicles (V2V), vehicles and infrastructure (V2I) and vehicles and pedestrians (V2P). In order for the automotive industry to deploy this technology in a timely manner, cooperation between suppliers in this industry becomes increasingly important. https://www.pressebox.de
Verizon acquires Senion
Verizon has acquired precise positioning company Senion, and with it, the company’s indoor positioning platform, which uses machine-learning sensors to deliver sub-meter accuracy for precise positioning and navigation of indoor spaces. The acquisition expands the Verizon’s location-based technology offerings and will provide customers with capabilities like indoor wayfinding, geofencing, location sharing and analytics and predictive intelligence.
