5G: Ericsson, Audi and Sick benefaction human-robot communication in genuine time

In a future, wireless prolongation robots and employees will work palm in hand. Real-time communication is essential for well-spoken collaboration. The pivotal to this is 5G record with a low latency, i.e. end-to-end delays of reduction than 10 milliseconds, and a high turn of network stability. As a result, communication between humans and machines is done even safer interjection to 5G. The witty proof during Ericsson’s Hannover Messe counter is an instance for a communication in a factory. The drudge has sensors connected to a 5G network. As shortly as a caller stretches his palm towards a robot, this is rescued by those sensors. The drudge afterwards hands a guest a parcel of packet sweets. “In a future, 5G will be essential to concede flexible, wireless robots to correlate reliably and safely with people in prolongation environments,” explains Jan-Peter Meyer-Kahlen, Head of a ICT Development Center Eurolab Aachen. “Because a drudge connected around 5G can conflict to humans in genuine time usually with intensely low latencies and really high availability.”

“The human-robot communication during a Hannover Messe is usually a beginning. With a introduction of 5G in automobile production, we are gaining totally new possibilities for joining machines around radio,” says Dr. Henning Löser, Head of a Audi Production Lab, in that Audi has been contrast a internal 5G network for car prolongation together with Ericsson given Aug 2018. “We are positively assured of a intensity of a new technology. That’s because we wish to set adult an in-house 5G network that will promote stretchable and stretchable prolongation in a future.”

Sebastian Heidepriem, Head of Wireless Technologies during SICK AG, explains: “In tie with wireless industrial communication, 5G record has pivotal advantages for a use of a sensor solutions in several applications. This form of communication allows elemental changes in program design for some-more stretchable automation. That’s because we are evaluating 5G record for industrial use. For example, we see an advantage in a fact that industrial vehicles can use 5G not usually inside prolongation halls, though also outside, and worldwide on open roads. The instance of a robotics focus during a Hanover Fair demonstrates how humans and robots will be means to combine improved in a destiny interjection to arguable communication with low latency.”
