The 5G Industry 4.0 testbed at Fraunhofer IIS is an open environment for testing specific customer use cases in industry and logistics. Testing applications with 5G early on accelerates the move towards fully connected, flexibly customizable production, assembly and logistics processes. All outdoor, indoor and transition areas of the testing area are equipped with interworking communication and positioning solutions. Companies can use the 5G Bavaria Industry 4.0 testbed to investigate how 5G can meet various industrial application requirements in real life. As positioning will be an important part of Industry 4.0 applications the 5G test bed is one of the first in the world showing 5G-based positioning in the context of Industry 4.0 applications. Our experts research both 5G positioning in the sub-6 GHz band and in the mmWave range.
In addition, emulation and simulation of specific 5G technologies can be performed in the related 5G Bavaria test center. The 5G Bavaria test bed Industry 4.0 is sponsored by the Bavarian Ministry of Economic Affairs, Regional Development and Energy.
