5GRIT Interim Final Report - Tourism

    Report Published on 30 Jul 2019
This project is part-funded by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport.

Brief Summary

Over the last year as part of the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport 5G Testbeds & Trials Programme, the 5GRIT project has brought together various tourism stakeholders and technology service providers in and around the North Pennines region. The interactions among these stakeholders created an opportunity to understand problems within the region and also created possibilities for innovation around enhancing the in-destination experience of tourists in the rural areas to bring in economic & social benefits within the region.

Our main research question was : how does 5G infrastructure enable the development of rural tourism focussed mobile augmented reality applications, which bring economic and social benefits to the region, especially in those areas which lack connectivity?
