Abstract

The 5G4LIVES project is an initiative implemented across 2 geographic clusters: Latvia and Italy. The project aims to leverage 5G connectivity and other innovative technologies, such as UAVs (or drones) and alternative hydrogen power, to enhance public safety and environmental health. Project seeks to enable optimal emergency management and data-driven forecasting through real-time aerial situational awareness and automatic vulnerability assessment of at-risk areas. This will contribute to increased public and environmental safety, save lives, enable forecasting of potential danger. In Latvia, the project partners will focus on developing a solution based on drones and 5G, monitoring and performing rescue operations in hard-to-reach areas in Riga: Vecaku Beach and Kisezers lake. This use case will enable the police to intervene more promptly and sustainably, address staff shortages, save time, increase the range of competencies of police officers. In Italy, project partners in Turin will develop a 5G-enabled, real-time situational awareness and vulnerability assessment service to mitigate the threat from and impact of natural disasters across the local hillside. This use case will also involve testing and implementing 5G-enabled anti-drone-hacking technology as well as studies on how to best integrate satellite data, making them interoperable with drone-acquired ones. This will improve pilot-drone command and control, mission planning, and real-time accurate tracking of the vehicle while in motion, and support the identification, extension, and analysis of vulnerabilities. The 5G4LIVES project will also conduct studies to map and develop safety protocols and procedures for drone flying over urban areas in Riga and validate a joint methodology for beyond-visual-line-of-sight (BVLOS) flights that will be also valid at the EU level. Communication activities will target local, national and EU cities and networks, informing on new technology-enabled business solutions.
