China Mobile, Huawei and China's Haier Electronics Group recently launched an AI+5G interconnected factory at the 2019 World Industrial Internet Conference (WIIC) in Qingdao.
This improvement refines future smart manufacturing by innovating and transforming enterprise organizations, business models, and ICT technologies, and integrating key technologies such as AI and 5G.
China Mobile Shandong and Huawei helped complete 5G base station deployment for Haier's interconnected factory in Zhongde Industrial Park, Huangdao District, Qingdao on June 13, 2019. The official release of the AI+5G interconnected factory provides an example for future AI+5G technologies and their facilitation of the interconnected factory transformation and upgrade.
The advent of 5G lays a solid network foundation for networked, digital, and intelligent upgrades of manufacturing and interconnected factories, provides a reliable and predictable network environment, and meets differentiated and deterministic network requirements of the industry, says Huawei. By leveraging key technologies such as Cloud Native, dynamic intelligent network slicing, and heterogeneous ultra-performance MEC, the 5G deterministic network provides differentiated+deterministic network service capabilities. It constructs an intelligent manufacturing system for complex scenarios, such as 5G+intelligent devices, 5G+machine vision, and 5G+AR man-machine collaboration. The intelligent manufacturing system is fully aware of process information. It can make decisions by itself, considering system-wide elements, and self-adapts to and learn from new conditions in real or near-real time through self-iteration, added Huawei.
