5G FOR SMART MANUFACTURING (5G-SMART)
2019 - 2022
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 twin, industrial robotics and machine vision based remote operations. 5G-SMART will undertake the first ever 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. 5G-SMART lead by Ericsson brings together a strong consortium of partners involved in every aspect of the manufacturing ecosystem. Prof. Jose F. Monserrat, member of the iTEAM, is the Innovation Manager of the Project.This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement no 857008.
