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.
Many members of the Clear5G team will be present in Ljubljana, we are happy to meet and discuss about 5G and the factories of the future.
The Dutch Smart Industry is working on an implementation agenda for 2018-2021.
The Clear5G project team at the kick-off at the University of Surrey, on September 19th and 20th 2017.
The Clear5G project team will officially start working on the project on September 1st 2017. The project kick off will be held on September 19th and 20th at the University of Surrey and will be hosted by the 5GIC (5G Innovation centre) team. During the first months we will detail the use cases, evaluate, together with our manufacturing partners, the actual real world requirements for wireless systems in industrial environments and start defining the system requirements which will then influence the design on PHY, MAC and networking layers.
The post "5G to Enhance Industrial IoT and Transform Industry Starting in 2020" by Wendy Harding, argues that mobile communication will become a key enabler for industrial IoT, in particular the importance of mobile and wireless connectivity for factory automation and process control are of high relevance to Clear5G and the challenges we are tackling.
