Factory work with remotely’controled robots is already a reality which will progresively change and facilitate this kind of work as we now know it. All this, thanks to 5G.
This following demo shown below represents on a video the value chain generated by an Edge Robotics vertical that provides its services to a Manufacturer vertical. All the process is accomplished using a slice of the network provided by the operator that includes Edge devices. By means of virtualization technologies the Operator supplies networking and computing capabilities at the edge of the network. As it is seen, everything is remote and secure.
The following document is a visual schematic that explains the process.
This work has been performed by UC3M and IMDEA Networks researchers collaborating in the projects 5G-CORAL(Grant 761585), 5G-TRANSFORMER (Grant 761536) and 5GEx (Grant 671636). All of these projects are under the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme. The video was shot at the 5G innovation lab 5TONIC (headquartered at IMDEA Networks) where the three projects have regularly performed tests, experiments and demonstrations of the 5G technologies under their study.
