5G for Smart Manufacturing

5G for Smart Manufacturing

Objective

Today smart manufacturing sector is undergoing a digital transformation addressing the challenge of reducing manual processes and increasing efficiency. 5G is foreseen as key enabler for the future manufacturing ecosystem termed Industry 4.0. 5G-SMART unlocks the value of 5G for smart manufacturing through demonstrating, validating and evaluating its potential in real manufacturing environments. 5G-SMART trials will test the most advanced 5G integrated manufacturing applications such as digital twins, industrial robotics and machine vision based remote operations by bringing first ever 5G deployment in manufacturing setup. 5G-SMART will undertake the evaluation of Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), channel measurements and co-existence between public and private industrial networks in real manufacturing environments easing the integration of 5G. The new 5G features, developed in 5G-SMART such as time synchronisation and positioning for manufacturing use cases represent a technological leap.

To further accelerate take-up of 5G in the manufacturing ecosystem, 5G-SMART will explore new business models, including the roles of mobile network operators. 5G-SMART will result in the development of future 5G standards for the manufacturing sector complemented by new 5G enabled manufacturing products and solutions. 5G-SMART open days will directly address small and medium enterprises making 5G-SMART technology accessible to them. 5G-SMART lead by Ericsson brings together a strong consortium of partners involved in every aspect of the manufacturing ecosystem.
