Main task and responsibilities:
The main task of Ericsson NT within this project will be the establishment, testing of analytical, and communication infrastructure in the context of testing telemedicine applications and systems for Smart agriculture.
In co-operation with the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Rijeka, the concept of Smart 5G Health Check Robot is to explore the possibilities of establishing an autonomous medical outpatient clinic on an isolated island that would allow for a set of health checks and the concept of Medicine Vending Machine to provide the first set of first aid medicines. Faculty of Medicine of the University of Rijeka is developing Health Check Robot that would be used to test communication latencies (in 4G and 5G infrastructure) responses if robot is controlled from remote medical facility.
Another set of tasks is to check IoT environment for smart and sustainable agriculture, where through an autonomous system based on the networked IoT platform, ensure optimal irrigation with water obtained from desalinisations. The concept enables analytics and decision-making in real-time through the monitoring of electricity production in the solar power plant, the battery life of the battery system, estimated energy consumption by regular island users, weather forecasts and other factors and to propose optimal energy consumption for the plant irrigation system.
