INGENJÖR 4.0 — Connectivity, 5G and Cloud Communication (I3)

This module focuses on explaining the capabilities of 5G that can support manufacturing and demonstrate examples of how 5G can be applied in a manufacturing context. Each module includes a mix of activities for example lectures, quizzes, an assignment with focus on how 5G can be applied in manufacturing, recommended readings, etc.

THIS LEARNING PROGRAM STARTS MARCH 8, 2021

Correspondence regarding the module will be sent to participants near the end of March 2021.

DESCRIPTION

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.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  • Understand 5G technology related to production
  • Understand the maturity index related to Industry 4.0 and connectivity (5G)
  • Create 5G scenarios related to Industry 4.0

MODULE STRUCTURE

The learning module is a mixture of self-study with recorded lectures and recommended reading as a support, webinars for joint discussions with other course participants, and exercises where theory is applied to the company setting.
