This Catalyst will showcase demonstrations from the 5G Enabled Manufacturing (5GEM) project, a consortium of eight organizations exploring use cases for 5G private networks in different manufacturing environments, including Ford and TWI. The two-year project, supported by the UK government 5G Testbeds and Trials Programme, uses TM Forum’s Internet of Things (IoT) and Open API standards.
The Catalyst will demonstrate the following applications of 5G:
• Changing machine configurations on the production line in real time in response to changes in environment, which is measured by 5G-connected sensors.
• Artificial Intelligence-based predictive maintenance to reduce downtime due to breakdowns and unnecessary maintenance, which requires secure, high-throughput 5G connections to access large quantities of data from manufacturing machines.
• Remote maintenance of factory equipment using real-time Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) to diagnose and fix problems quickly and minimize downtime.
USE CASES: Proving new use cases and the application of TM Forum's standards are essential to building the 5G business case for vertical industries, such as manufacturing.
