What changes can 5G bring to industrial robots?

- Jun 19, 2019-

Domestic 5G development speed is much higher than expected, both robot manufacturers and service providers, need to consider and advance the 5G technology field.

First, data backhaul is more efficient. The 5G downlink peak rate is 20Gbps, and its rate is 20 times that of the Gigabit 4G network. In the application process, the robot accepts information and task instructions, which is bound to be more efficient and faster. The 5G network latency is as low as 1 millisecond, while the human response time is typically 400 milliseconds. 5G compares 4G networks and the end-to-end delay is reduced by 5 times. After the popularization of 5G, real-time data return is not a problem, so people can monitor the working status of the robot in real time.

Second, more flexible and more end. The WIFI communication method has the problems of easy interference, insufficient handover and coverage capability, and the application factory's 5G technology-based eLTE related technology is more anti-interference, and the number of 5G communication networkable devices increases 10-100 times, and the coverage area is wider ( The transmission distance is up to 10KM), which means that the robot solution provider can better obtain the overall data information because of the improvement of the network technology, and provide more efficient and quick data analysis for the solution design. It also saves the cost of network communication to a certain extent.

Third, the trend of cloud robots. 5G is the basic technology for implementing clouded robots. The high bandwidth and low latency brought by 5G can put most of the calculations into the cloud. Under the premise of security and security, when the robot is deployed on a large scale, the cloud acts as a central control platform. It can realize remote control of the robot by remote control.
