Those who will make it happen

 President

Petra Dalunde

COO, Urban ICT Arena

At Urban ICT Arena we are trying to create the best possible ground to develop products and services that contribute to the sustainable and connected city. I believe that drones with their 3D capacitation constitutes a beautiful possibility enabled by digitalization and connectivity. They also disrupt society in so many interesting ways, challenging legislation, regulation and old business models.  In Urban ICT Arena we want to build a new testbed – for drones in an urban environment – in a safe but very complex part of Stockholm.

At Ericsson, we have a keen interest in understanding in depth our current and future customers, as well as the real needs of society so that we can further develop our products and services. Both the drone and telecom industries have a strong vision that mobile networks will play an important role in the rapidly growing drone industry, so it is very important to start with reality-based testing even in urban environments. It is inspiring to work together with partners who come up with new uses and insights that we could not even think of before.
