Connectivity, 5G and Cloud Communication

This module focuses the capabilities of 5G that can support manufacturing and demonstrate examples of how 5G can be applied in a manufacturing context.

STARTING DATE: Spring 2022

Overview
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 self-study reading as a support, webinars for joint discussions with other module participants, and exercises where theory is applied to the company setting. Expect videos, exercises, reflections that you share with other participants, forums for cross-participant discussions, and much more.

Content

Five themes covering:

  • Industry 4.0
  • 5G
  • 5G and Manufacturing
  • Exercise on 5G and Manufacturing
  • 5G Enabled Manufacturing

Time commitment

To complete this module, the participant is expected to schedule approximately 4 hours per week over 5 weeks (20 hours in total).
