5th generation of mobile communication system (5G) is demonstrating its potential as a disruptive technology across various vertical industries. In particular, in the field of industrial automation and manufacturing, 5G is expected to play a central role in realizing the vision of smart factories of the future, where a high level of programmability, flexibility and customization in the manufacturing is expected. 5G can transform the way manufacturing systems are realized and operated through providing real-time, reliable, and secure communication services among the machines and their subsystems (a.k.a. Industrial IoT, and Industry 4.0).
The intense research work done in the last years has reached the point where the 5G enablers are ready to be exploited by industry. Some flagship 5G trials in the framework of smart manufacturing are being prepared while standards are at fast pace completing the support of Time Sensitive Networking for its full integration into downlink and uplink 5G carriers.
The objective of this workshop is to bring together technical experts and researchers from industry and academia to discuss opportunities and challenges related to the realization and operation of 5G-enabled smart factories and to present the advances on the trials side.
Topics of interests for this workshop include, but are not limited to:
