During Science Weekend (October 2-3) in Hoogezand, there will be all kinds of activities on the topic of 5G, the latest generation of mobile communication. On Saturday, visitors can dive into the future using robots, autonomous transportation, drones and other smart devices.

During the “Make Business for 5G” public day, the capabilities and opportunities of 5G will be showcased, making mobile internet much faster, for example.

Entrepreneurs and organizations in the region are demonstrating their applications with 5G, and there are presentations and workshops for young and old. For example, demonstrations of applications in agriculture, health, traffic and daily life are given. Additionally, visitors can wear virtual reality glasses, sit in an autonomous bus, enjoy a drone taxi, and show the smart safety vest to police officers.
