This Week in 5G: Who You Gonna Call? 5G!


5G could enable technologies that better equip first responders in emergencies (if there’s something strange in your neighborhood) along with other developments this week. Let’s dive in!

Verizon’s 5G First Responder Lab is looking for ways that 5G can improve emergency response management, such as IoT diagnostic sensors or drone delivery of medical devices to hard-to-reach areas.

Intel announced three new Project Athena labs that will work on innovations in laptops and chipsets including 5G connectivity and longer battery life.

Qualcomm and Google are teaming up to enhance Android Q’s developer APIs for 5G. The collaboration will help app developers offer faster access to cloud services, lower video stream latency, and new features in cloud gaming and AR.

A North Carolina hospital is using drones to deliver time-sensitive medical samples across its sprawling campus, cutting down wait times and speeding up diagnoses.

Self-driving car start-ups like Waymo and Voyage are planning for 5G connectivity as a crucial part of their business plans, including for future commercial ride-hailing services.

That’s all for this week. See you next time!
