To showcase how 5G technology is capable of revolutionizing safer production processes in factories.
With Audi and SICK, a leading manufacturer of sensor technology, Ericsson connected a German factory using 5G, so that Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) could maneuver safely and wirelessly around the workspace.
5G connects all the dots in factory environments and addresses multiple problems in the same network, resulting in tremendous flexibility improvements, enhanced connectivity and a complete reimagining of what safe human-robot collaboration can look like.
Supporting sustainability goals
The highlighted sustainability goals are included in the project.
“Working alongside SICK and Audi, we can address complex use cases that could never be solved before, making human-robot collaboration possible.”
