5G for industrial applications


5G for industrial applications


For several industrial applications (e.g. connection of machines to a factory data network, vehicle-to-vehicle & vehicle-to-infrastructure communication, and remote control of (mobile) machines) current wireless technologies (4G, WiFi, Bluetooth, Lora, SigFox, etc.) have shortcomings w.r.t. throughput, latency and/or coverage.

5G is the next generation of wireless technology for digital cellular networks following 4G and promises to resolve some of these shortcomings. However, how to integrate 5G in industrial applications is still unknown.

Project goal

The 5G4InApp_ICON project will investigate reference architecture for integrating 5G in industrial applications.


5G4InApp_ICON is an Industrial Research ICON project. We are looking for companies to join the User Group and work with us on the valorisation of the project.
