This is a pretty cool use of drone technology. While using drones to identify and fix trouble spots is a great start, why not just employ the use of signal boosting drones during the game that hover over locations with low signal?
Art Pregler, the AT&T Drone Program Director explained the drones are equipped with mobile signal measuring devices and they fly over every seating section. Those devices then gauge how strong mobile signals are in the areas they survey. Pregler says the idea is to be able to identify which areas need a boost in signal service and then make the proper adjustments.
