Oak trees, creeks and the Internet of Things
Robledillo de la Jara is a village with 90 inhabitants located 80 kilometres from Madrid in the mountains surrounding the capital. Its landscape is made up of oak and pine trees, golden eagles, and of recently…drones and IoT technology. SEAT, Telefónica, DGT, Ficosa and Aeorum have rolled out a pilot project featuring a drone and a connected car that can detect cyclists and obstacles on the road. The feature needed to carry out this project included cellular mobile connectivity with the primary characteristics of the future 5G network, and the aim is to provide drivers with a "sixth sense" so they can prevent accidents.
