As the modern world keeps on accelerating, people are increasingly reaching the limits of their own capabilities. 5G serves to speed up and digitalize working processes – and will allow a 100-fold increase in real-time transmission speeds relative to 4G or earlier generations.
In collaboration with NIK, the network for the digital economy of the Nuremberg Metropolitan Region, Fraunhofer IIS is presenting the fifth generation of the mobile communications network as part of its 5G Bavaria initiative. Over four events, the Institute will examine the capabilities and opportunities of the technology from a theoretical and a practical perspective.
Particular focus has been placed on the key areas of communication and positioning. In light of its high positioning accuracy, 5G is used in industrial applications such as driverless transport systems and the automation of industrial processes. By enabling real-time data transmission for wireless communication in autonomous production lines, 5G paves the way for frictionless and error-free processes.
