Due to faster speeds and lower latency the factory, producer, and raw materials plant are able to communicate at never‑before‑seen speeds.
In a matter of hours, the cotton is shipped to the producer, spun into fluff, and placed out for delivery to the US factory.
The connection between the intake and assembly is fast - in near real-time - and much more reliable. The factory processes inventory of all necessary resources, including the cotton that has just arrived from Mexico.
Computer vision provides a new way for factory employees to remotely monitor the assembly process through augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR).
5G speeds will unify the manufacturing process, boosting efficiency and minimizing downtime by enabling multiple smart devices to share the same network.
For example, a series of 5G-enabled collaborative robots (cobots) put together all bear parts in stock.
Sensors and cobots exchange information with one another, processing data at blazing speeds and making on-the-fly adjustments on the factory floor.
Thanks to 5G, numerous IIoT devices are connected to a single network.
These networks of IIoT are able to produce and analyze large amounts of data, and communicate to work together in a seamless production cycle.
Powering AI Algorithms
5G allows AI algorithms to analyze these massive amounts of machine-generated data, which translates to optimizations around sales through predicting consumer tendencies, processing multiple orders at a single time, and directing resources for shipping and assembly.
Shipping and Logistics
With faster speeds and more data, AI algorithms
will also be able to streamline logistics by predicting optimal routes via analyzing GPS, traffic, and weather information.
