SmartFactoryKL demonstrates the use of 5G at Hannover Messe and offers visitors to experience the benefits in the descriptive use case “Quality assurance during transport”.
How can high data rates be protected and transmitted with the lowest possible latency in an industrial environment? The ideal answer is the new 5G mobile technology, which is scheduled to be launched by 2020. The partner consortium behind the SmartFactoryKL Industrie 4.0 production plant will demonstrate a use case at Hannover Messe from April 23-27, 2018: an optical quality inspection is performed as the work piece is moved by the flexible transport system.
Data is transmitted wirelessly by means of the 5G technology from the camera to the cloud for evaluation. Depending on the result, the product is moved to the next appropriate processing point. This solution is presented at the joint exhibit stand of SmartFactoryKL and the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) in Hall 8, Stand D18.
