Global IoT connectivity company Pangea has announced a 5G partnership with Kingston University in the UK to develop enriched video compression and data transfer techniques over 4G+ and 5G networks for the emergency services sector. This will help provide remote triage technology to help boost ambulance response times and shorten turnaround times at hospital accident and emergency (A&E) departments.
Pangea claims that the work from this project will be a world first, with the partners set to be the first to bring this capability to market. Pangea will work with the Professor of Wireless Communications Christoa Politis and video compression specialist associate professor Nada Philip. A new Kingston graduate hire will also be made at Pangea’s Kingston, UK, office to head up the project.
The partnership is supported by Innovate UK through its Knowledge Transfer Programme (KTP) and will use the 5G test bed facility at Kingston University in London.
