What are we doing?
This industrial application use case will use sensor data and 5G to capture, monitor and gain insight of the changing variable conditions within a factory environment. Ultimately, this data will benefit operations by adjusting activities and settings to compensate for any changes in the environment. It will also provide insight into how the environment can affect operations and cause fluctuations in tolerances.
The sensors will provide feedback on internal factory and external local environmental conditions such as temperature, air pressure and humidity as well as external influences such as tides and lunar cycles, location data, building management systems supplying events data on electricity distribution, alarms and other events. They will also provide feedback on other events and influences such as machine movement, radio frequency identification scans, connections to human-machine interface on machines, shocks or exposure to extremes.
To understand the impact of 5G, all data will flow through the 5G network to realise the effects, impact, benefits, and constraints of 5G on the manufacturing processes.
