Nokia and Mobile Industrial Robots (MiR), a company that makes mobile, self-driving robots, have shown how private 5G wireless can be used to help industries become more digital.
The businesses will show how 5G may be used to transform processes, such as real-time fleet management of industrial robots, for businesses like manufacturers and warehouse operators.
At its exhibit at the Stuttgart expo, MiR will make use of the Nokia Digital Automation Cloud (DAC) end-to-end industrial private wireless solution.
MiR’s autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) will use Nokia Industrial dongles with built-in SIM cards to connect to the 5G private wireless network.
Work instructions may be transmitted and carried out in real-time while keeping all data secure within the network thanks to the great performance, ultra-low latency, and security provided by private 5G wireless. When moving over expansive areas like warehouses, the AMRs have always been linked thanks to their high reliability and coverage.
“Our AMRs cover a range of workflows that enable manufacturing, warehousing, and distribution facilities to automate time-consuming processes,” explains Sren Nielsen, president of MiR. By collaborating with Nokia, we can demonstrate how 5G enables real-time fleet management.
Jochen Apel, vice president of digital industries at Nokia Enterprise, says that industries can use Nokia DAC to set up private 4.9G/LTE and 5G wireless networks to digitally change their processes.
We’re excited to show off with MiR how 5G’s excellent performance makes sure there are no coverage gaps so real-time commands can be sent to autonomous mobile robots in huge manufacturing floors and warehouses.
The Nokia DAC end-to-end platform offers an enterprise-grade, private 4G/LTE and 5G wireless network solution with edge computing, radio access points, and user equipment.
Companies will be able to analyze large volumes of video and data for real-time analysis and ongoing process optimization thanks to private edge cloud capabilities.
To make device maintenance simpler, Nokia DAC provides a strong web-based management portal. The Nokia DAC catalog has a lot of different apps that can be chosen and installed at the edge.
