Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) and Bharti Airtel announced the testing of use cases from TCS’ Neural Manufacturing solutions on Airtel’s 5G network.
TCS’ Neural Manufacturing solutions help manufacturers to build smart, cognitive factories which mimic resilient and adaptive behaviors. They leverage latency communication, enhanced bandwidth, and high device density characteristics of 5G networks and the power of technologies like AI/ML, computer vision, industrial robotics and AR/VR to enable autonomous actions on the shopfloor.
TCS tested two use cases on Airtel’s 5G testbed – remote manufacturing operations using robotics, and vision-based quality inspection, demonstrating how TCS’ Neural Manufacturing solutions and 5G technology can transform plant operations, and significantly boost quality, productivity, and safety.
“Our partnership with Airtel to deploy and validate innovative use cases on their 5G network serves as a proof point of the transformative power of these technologies,” said Susheel Vasudevan, Business Group Head, Manufacturing & Utilities, TCS.
“The 5G ecosystem will open limitless possibilities for enterprises to enhance productivity and serve their customers even better with digitally enabled applications,” Randeep Sekhon, CTO, Bharti Airtel, said.
TCS in a media statement said its Neural Manufacturing solutions help customers across manufacturing, consumer packaged goods, automotive, aerospace, energy, utilities, healthcare, life science and hi-tech domains, achieve an autonomous or lights-out factory vision.
