Robin Hood’s famed Sherwood Forest in Nottingham will be the world’s very first forest to get 5G, so it can host new virtual and augmented reality content material anticipated to launch in March 2021.
Following a £10 million ($13 million) investment from the UK government below its “5G Create” system and Nottingham City Council, Sherwood Forest will be updated with a quantity of new attractions more than time, which includes 3D and 4D virtual reality experiences, semi-autonomous automobiles, and drones and robots to support “survey and monitor the overall health of the forest.”
In a statement, Nottinghamshire County Council leader Councillor Kay Cutts MBE stated: “Nottinghamshire is when once more at the forefront of [the] most recent technologies, bringing collectively some of the very best academic minds, 3D creators and specialists in 5G. This will be the world’s very first testing, of 5G, in a forest. It will bring the stories related with Robin Hood and our ancient woodland to life in a new way.”
“Together with our partners, we will develop a virtual reality expertise for guests to Sherwood Forest to attract even much more households and guests to Nottinghamshire from across the UK and overseas, bringing added benefits to neighborhood organizations and our economy.”
When the UK has been struggling with its 5G network, due to conflicts in between the British government and the Trump Administration over Huawei gear, the Division for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport has stated that “none of the…projects, or future projects from 5G Make, will use gear from higher danger vendors.”
As The Register points out, this appears to go against the suggestions of GCHQ’s National Cyber Safety Centre, which says a balance desires to be struck in between the safety danger of gear from higher danger vendors and the want for diversity of provide. It is unlikely that a Robin Hood expertise constitutes a higher safety danger, but it is superior to be secure than sorry.
