Audi has entered into a partnership with Ericsson for a pilot project that will focus on a 5G-powered automation application on its car manufacturing process. Audi claims that using 5G technology in vehicle production will offer many opportunities.

Audi also said that unlike other wireless technologies, 5G is more reliable and it reacts more robustly to high usage levels. This makes it suitable for connecting sensors, machines and devices operated by human beings.

Improvements in flexibility and connectivity

The carmaker also said that the robot cell will be protected by safety sensors. When a human hand breaks through the cell’s light curtain, the robot stops automatically. The high-frequency (Fieldbus) communication required for it is done by the very low latency time.
