Massive Advancement in 5G Infrastructure Market: Researchers Develop Mobile Tethered Drones to Reduce Concern over EMFs
Posted On October 13, 2021
People worldwide have raised their concern over the EMF (Electromagnetic Fields) exposure to the mobile network. The problem has been critical that it has destroyed signaling towers, particularly ones linked to 5G networks. Recent experiments on animals have indeed indicated adverse health impacts as a result of long-term exposure to EMF. The findings are concerning even though the intensity mentioned is much higher than produced by cell phone networks. Looking at the bring concern of the public and its alleged impact on health, addressing the issue by the mobile signal providers would be reputational and commercially beneficial.
A research team might have solved the issue as they introduced mobile tethered drones with the potential to act as a speedy and environmentally friendly alternative. The new drones could help receive terrestrial base stations while eliminating apprehensions related to EMF. The latest development is a massive contribution to the 5G Infrastructure Market . It might enable quick acceptance of the technology by the general people resulting in the 5G network’s advancement.
Although the most public concern is focused on EMF exposure from network base stations — the towers positioned on high buildings and spread across the rural landscape - EMF exposure from mobile phones can be significantly higher than that from base stations. Taking note of this, researchers presented their newly developed TUAVs (Tethered Unmanned Aerial Vehicles), which would receive the said signals, thus decreasing user’s uplink exposure, i.e., exposure from the mobile-to-base station.
Researchers suggest a network of ground stations above the building in urban environments supplying broadband data links and power to the TUAVs. The capacity to relocate the TUAVs on demand would allow them to lower the power required from mobile phones by being closer to these phones and modifying their position during the day to reflect changing user movement patterns. The areas covered by mobile signals might vary dramatically throughout the day as commuters rush into metropolitan centres and return home in the evening.
The team also developed a complex computational algorithm to utilize the changing positions of the antennas. Even though TUAVs would be close to users relatively, they would still use existing low power technology (green antennas). This would ensure that they receive the signals but do not radiate EMF. Importantly the system also offers significantly better internet speed.
