5G Connected Forest is a world-first project as part of the Government’s 5G Testbed and Trials programme to assess the potential for 5G applications in the historical site of Nottinghamshire’s Sherwood Forest area.

Delivering 5G connectivity to the forest and surrounding area will pave the way for research areas to investigate the role of 5G in delivering visitor attractions for all ages, protecting the sensitive forest environment through robotic environmental management and live monitoring, and will also provide the base for an innovation accelerator programme to allow 5G applications to be tested and commercialised.

Mobile Magazine: May 2022

The front cover of the May 2022 issue of Mobile Magazine features our 5G robot dog competition winner, Sam Davies, of The King’s Church of England Primary Academy in Newark.

Research areas

5G Connected Forest is to investigate three research areas in Sherwood Forest and the surrounding area.

These research areas will develop use cases which will help revitalise and revolutionise the visitor economy in Nottinghamshire.
