Qualcomm’s study: drones can be successfully controlled via LTE

According to Qualcomm, LTE drone testing proves reliability of such a control method.

The best height for such flights is 120 meters. Even if control towers are switched over, the connection with a drone is not disrupted. Nevertheless, a net disruption can influence the UAV’s flight.

There were many attempts to control drones via cellular networks. But Qualcomm’s trials were the first to demonstrate signal permanence thought LTE standard.

Tests results prove that potential distance of flights performed by drones is limited only by geographical location of towers with an LTE signal and technical peculiarities of an UAV.
