Milton Keynes Council and its partners, will use 5G to trial advanced mobility and hospitality logistics at the Stadium MK home of MK Dons, driving research in the field of automation. The use cases will include three forms of autonomous vehicles, drones and robots delivering ground-breaking applications illustrating how major venues can operate in the future. The host site, Stadium MK home of MK Dons, includes a 30,400 seat stadium, 5000 seat indoor arena, 304 bed hotel and 1300 parking spaces. The site also hosts a multiplex cinema, gym complex, restaurants and major retail park.

John Cove, Director, Mk Dons said: “We are delighted that the MK5G Create project has been selected to receive support from DCMS. We have been able to bring together a world class team to integrate and exploit 5G capability in a dynamic real world environment  - this will truly demonstrate how Stadium MK home of MK Dons, working with MK council and our partners can use new technology to support a major international sporting and cultural venue.”
