I am new to this forum, I have been around arducopter for a while and use drones regularly.
not sure if this is the right section…
Recently I took part in a low latency demo for a 5g application and it got me thinking.
I work for Ericsson and to test the network core I built a rover using a navio board.
I was thinking the ultimate demonstration of Low latency would be off board flight control.
is it possible to use the APM/Navio… whatever just as a sensor and have the drone flight controlled by an off board controller located in the 5g network core?
I believe there are outputs that I could feed into the core giving live status from all sensors, but I have no idea if the actual flight control could be managed from a virtual machine in the core?
any ideas would be great… we are seeing sub 5ms latency int he test network, and bandwiths of around 5 Gb/s so theoretically it should be able to handle controlling all aspects of the flight control. effectively turning the drone into a thin client.
