Turkcell and Ericsson have announced they have successfully demonstrated a 5G industrial use case of Autonomous Mobile Robot (AMR) Safe Crossing.

The demo, carried out in a real warehouse setting, follows Turkcell and Ericsson’s first successful trial of ‘5G-connected AMR’, performed in Turkcell’s test laboratory in Turkey earlier this year.

The latest AMR Safe Crossing demonstration was achieved over Turkcell’s Ericsson-backed 5G private network and was deployed in close collaboration with autonomous mobile robot manufacturer Milvus Robotics.

“The use case involved AMRs, Milvus Robotics’ own production SEIT500, that were tested for material handling within the warehouse. The AMR, connected over the trial 5G network, transferred the orders created over the Internet to the robots' joint task manager via the order management system, which were then transferred to the robots in the warehouse via 5G,” explained Ericsson in a blog post.

“In this demonstration, the 5G-connected AMR worked safely, efficiently, and smoothly over the wireless connection with the task manager and the industrial area scanner placed in the blind spot thereby overcoming the anticipated challenges of WiFi connections like disconnections and delays.”

As an aftermath of this successful trial, Turkcell will look to offer reliable, fast, and secure 5G private connectivity to its enterprise customers in the logistics sector, among other vertical industries aided by Ericsson Private 5G (EP5G) end-to-end solution.

“As the demand of industries to connect more devices rises, so does the need for high-quality networks,’ commented Işıl Yalçın, VP and head of Ericsson Turkey at Ericsson Middle East and Africa.

“Ericsson Private Network Solutions (EP5G) is the prime choice for secure and efficient connectivity with high throughput and low latency that supports many use cases. It is expected that 5G technology will become the standard of industrial communication infrastructure in the very near future, considering the necessity of connections and communications, especially for Industry 4.0 and Logistics 4.0.”
