  • In collaboration with Ericsson and BT, we demoed our work on 5G for Haptic Communications ina tele-robotic surgery demonstration in Mobile World Congress 2017.
    Check the BT broadcast from the event for more details.
  • We demoed our research on 5G network slicing, Tactile Internet, and remote robotic intervention in the 5G World Summit.
    Check this video for a fantastic demonstration by Maria.
  • My interview with Telecom TV on 5G Ultra-low latency, during ETSI 5G summit is available here.
