- Most analysts agree that smart manufacturing is likely to represent the biggest portion of market revenues for the Internet of Things (IoT) in the near future.
- Smart manufacturing is dependent on industrial automation, which relies heavily on the use of robots and machine intelligence.
- The factory of the future will be realized through the digitization of the manufacturing process and plants, which will be enabled by 5G networks and all their building blocks. As a leader in 5G infrastructure – including cloud technologies, big data analytics and IT capabilities – Ericsson is well placed to take a leading role in this transformation and partner with industries to develop solutions that are tailored to fit their needs.
- Our fruitful collaboration with Comau, a world leader in industrial automation, and the Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies, a highly regarded academic center of excellence in robotics, is the first step.
