Proeftuin 5Groningen

5Groningen is transforming North-Groningen into the ultimate testing ground for the latest generation of mobile internet. Entrepreneurs and non-profit organizations are joining forces with experts to test 5G applications. We are calling the pilot area the 5G Field Lab.

The applications we are testing concern developments in the care, energy, traffic & logistics, agriculture and living environment sectors. They include applications to monitor diseases in crops as they grow, using sensors that measure information and send huge volumes of data via the high-speed 5G network for swift analysis. Or applications that allow a doctor in a hospital to make a long-distance diagnosis thanks to a fast connection conveying live images from an ambulance.
