5G as an enabler for Industry 4.0

Starting date: Autumn 2024
Price: 1 995 SEK ex. vat

This module focus capabilities of 5G that can support manufacturing


5G promises to be a key enabler for Factories of the Future. The manufacturing industries require support from the 5G community, in particular for:

  1. A highly reliable wireless communication to integrate mobile robots, AGVs, etc. into the closed loop control processes.
  2. A seamless experience while using hybrid wireless and wired network technologies with a cost-effective management of the network that unifies the connected assets of a factory.
  3. Innovations inside the network to offer networked services. 5G technologies will play a key role as unifying platform that supports all communication scenarios, and offers mobility-features and seamless service experience.

This module aims at describing how 5G can enable an adaptive information system in an Industry 4.0 environment and to practically and theoretically enable connectivity by performing a Factory Radio Design.
