Audi, Ericsson test 5G technology in car production
Car manufacturer Audi and telecommunications technology provider Ericsson plan to test the use of the emerging 5G mobile phone and network technology for automotive production for the first time. To this end, the two companies have signed a Memorandum of Understanding at Audi's headquarters in Ingolstadt (Germany).

5G technology has many network characteristics that are essential in modern production with increasingly flexible and complex production processes. For example, 5G allows higher data throughput rates and more network capacities and promises highly secure availability. In addition, low latencies ensure faster reaction times between different systems in the factory system.

In their test field, the partners focus on a particularly latency-critical application: The team tests the wireless interaction between an industrial robot and an adhesive application - an automated process that is the order of the day in automotive production. Ericsson's proof-of-concept (PoC) network used for this purpose is designed to integrate alternative or complementary technologies to those currently in use - such as WiFi or cable-based connections of production components.
