The 5G themed April 2019 edition of the ERCIM news features an article on Clear5G, the article "Clear5G: 5G Empowers the Factories of the Future", can be found here.
The team visited the Anest Iwata factory in Hsinchu County, Taiwan. The team reviewed the demo area in the factory and small technology tests on UE relaying were undertaken.
The Clear5G team is holding their plenary meeting in Taiwan from 19th to 21st of March 2019. On the first day the progress on the technical items and the integration into the different use cases is being discussed. On the second day the team visits the trails site at Anest Iwata and on teh third day the technical meeting continues and will conclude with the planning for the remaining project duration.
The Technical Manager of Clear5G, Dr Haibin Zhang (TNO) has been invited as visiting Professor by the Graduate Institute of Communication Engineering in the Department of Electrical Engineering, National Taiwan University, Taiwan.
The Clear5G team met for a preparation meeting and the. first year project review at the start of December 2018 in Vienna, Austria. The meeting was co-located with ICT 2018: Imagine Digital - Connect Europe event. The reviewers included experts from both Europe as well as Taiwan.
The Clear5G team is holding their plenary meeting in Taiwan from 17th to 20th of July. The first two days are to discuss the technical progress and next steps towards the integration of the different research outcomes into the Clear5G system definition and eventually the proof of concept demonstrators. On the third day, the team will visit a factory site where the FoF demo will be set up and trialled.
Clear5G and the approach we are taking was presented by our project leader, Klaus Moessner, University of Surrey, at the "Multi-provider, multi-vendor, multi-player orchestration: from distributed cloud to edge and fog environments in 5G" workshop (3) at EuCNC2018 in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
The discusion following the presentation was around the requirements that future manufacturing will raise towards the wireless comms systems taht will facilitate the flexibility needed for highly adaptable manufacturing environments.
The presentation slides are available on slideshare: here.
Our technical Manager, Haibin Zhang of TNO, presented "5G for the Factories of the Future" at the EUCNC 2018 Workshop 1 : Vertical Industries & Services for 5G (VIS5G) on Monday 18th June 2018, in Ljubljana, Slovenia. The workshop was very well attended and the presentation well received.
The slides are available on slideshare: here.
Clear5G, joint with 5G-Xcast, 5G-MEDIA, SaT5G, 5GCity, IORL, H2020 Project FLAME, 5GCAR, Global5G.org, and IRACON are organising the one day workshop on "Vertical Industries & Services for 5G (VIS5G)" at the European Conference on Networks and Communication - EUCNC 2018, on June 18th in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
In particular Clear5G will be part of the afternoon session discussing the use and the opportunities of 5G in future manufacturing.
