5G Factory Network

The Revolution in Automotive Production Starts in Aachen

Within three years: an electric car ready for series production, the development of an e-bus for autonomous driving, and a 5G factory network put into operation. What happens next at e.GO Mobile?

5G in Use Before 5G Even Exists!

Industry debut in Aachen: A self-sufficient 5G mobile radio network is used for the first time in the German automobile production. Realized as a campus network in the 16,000 square meter Factory 1 of the automotive start-up, transportation vehicles, machines, and tools are to provide and exchange information almost in real-time.

The goal: an agile production network that reacts proactively to changes.

Patrick Rülke, Team Lead Production-IT at e.GO Mobile, reports on 5G-based use cases that contribute to the transparent and quality-assured production of the first series-produced e-car in Germany.

The 5G network is the basis for networking processes such as container management, component supply or AGV control as mobile assembly assistants, and the UHF RFID, sensor and camera systems used for this purpose.
