With our foresight and drive, we play a key role in keeping innovation going – even in times of crisis – and we work hard to advance it. In 2020, for example, we opened the 5G Bavaria Test Center and Industry 4.0 Test Bed.

With its 5G Bavaria initiative, the State of Bavaria supports companies by providing a unique offer of a test center and two testbeds for Industry 4.0 and automotive applications at Fraunhofer IIS in Erlangen and Nuremberg.

The development of 5G-based solutions will be a key step in the implementation of new IoT applications. By using the 5G Bavaria test environment, companies can close the gap between the rapidly advancing standardization of 5G and its practical implementation for industrial use. They can use the facilities to test applications under realistic conditions and benefit from the neutral expertise Fraunhofer IIS offers as a partner for research, technology development and evaluation, and technical consulting.
