Unleaching Industry Applications

Wireless industry services

New technology for Smart Energy Grids as part of 5G VIIMA activities is studying opportunities and impacts of utilizing 5G URLLC, AI, localized processing and enhanced security solutions in smart energy to achieve better system performance, security and especially cost savings. The use case focuses on electricity network control, protection, fault location, security, and intelligent data processing.   Project forms the middle tier in a long-term smart energy vision offering tools and applications for smart management of remotely monitored, controlled, and protected Grids.

Machines with embedded wireless sensoring, cameras and other intelligence and then humans handling the data or interacting with machines using smart devices with AR/VR capabilities offer a huge value potential in industry segment.  This project aims to boost technology development and service creation for industry use services where machines or goods would provide necessary information using wireless connectivity, and humans would then utilize that data for smart decisions

Live video combined with data analytics provides an effective toolbox for wide set of industry applications. It can be used for identifying relevant objects, such as vehicles, load and persons, and for maintenance, security and quality assurance. In addition to traditional video cameras, modern 360° video cameras can be exploited widening the service offering even further. Based on the video analytics information from multiple different types of cameras, such as 360° camera, thermal camera and zoom equipped high-resolution robotic camera, can be integrated together to provide enhanced view for numerous services. This project aims to introduce those services to see the value for closed factories or open industrial campuses.

5G offers the possibility of delivering real-time video view wirelessly and use that for controlling moving or stationary devices.   In these cases, low latency and high quality are the main requirement to guarantee efficient operation. Moreover, IoT sensor data can be also overlaid on top of the video to provide additional real-time information about the target.

5G will unleash robots and various autonomous vehicles to enable efficient and safe operation also in complex environments and so provide new revenue potential or alternatively remarkable cost savings for the industry. Such assets provide opportunities for object detection, object recognition, environment scanning, path planning and real-time environment updates to maps.

Smart Products take the advantage of appearing mMTC solutions and eSIM by integration of sensors in products during manufacturing.   This integrated intelligence may collect data about the delivery conditions,   and in the target environment can report maintenance needs or e.g. useful data about the surroundings. Such scenario involves interesting new research challenges around data, such as business model for data ownership between product manufacturer and end-customer, as well as global roaming challenges.
