5G-HEART: 5G HEalth AquacultuRe and Transport validation trials, funded by the European Union in the Horizon 2020 Programme, 14.3 M€

    Project: Project at former HEI

    Project Details


    5G-HEART will focus on the vital vertical use-cases of Healthcare, Automotive and Aquaculture. In the health area, 5G-HEART will validate pillcams for automatic detection in screening of colon cancer and vital-sign patches with advanced geo-localization as well as 5G AR/VR paramedic services. In the Automotive area, 5G-HEART will validate autonomous/assisted/remote driving and vehicle data services. Regarding food, focus will be on 5G-based transformation of aquaculture sector (worldwide importance for Norway, Greece, Ireland). The consortium includes major vertical players, research/academic institutions and SMEs. Partners have proven know-how in 5G, vertical applications, standardisation, business modelling, prototyping, demonstrations and trials. 5G-HEART KPI validation will ensure improved healthcare, public safety, farm management and business models in a 5G market, stimulating huge business opportunities within and beyond the project.
