Deutsche Telekom aims to integrate existing technologies into the 5G infrastructure to enhance its 5G enterprise offerings. Deutsche Telekom is also working with partners such as EK Automation, Konica Minolta and Endress+Hauser.
Technicians at EK Automation, a manufacturer of automated guided vehicle systems, have equipped transport robots with 3D cameras. They integrated a 3D obstacle detection with dynamic route planning into the Edge Cloud. The transport robot sends the 3D camera images to the cloud for analysis in real time via the Telekom 5G network. This enabled the vehicle to avoid obstacles placed in the roadway.
Konica Minolta is developing its AIRe Lens. The augmented reality glass helps technicians to assemble machines. It shows instructions on the display. The technician can show the situation to an expert at a remote location. AIRe Lens will deliver data directly via Deutsche Telekom’s 5G network in Germany and increase the speed and quality of manufacturing.
Endress+Hauser will equip its sensors with mobile radio modules. Deutsche Telekom’s 5G will transmit process and device data in real time making industrial processes more efficient.
