- Huawei promotes innovative 5G solutions for Industry 4.0 infrastructure to help digitalize industrial manufacturing
BUDAPEST, Hungary, Nov. 9, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- The 5G Smart Factory Forum was recently held at the Huawei European Supply Center (HESC) in Budapest. At the forum, Huawei stated that innovative solutions powered by 5G, including autonomous vehicles, AI-powered quality control, and AR-assisted remote maintenance, will serve as typical applications and core capabilities of future smart factories.
To drive widespread adoption of 5G and AI technologies in Industry 4.0-related fields and thus facilitate the development of the digital economy, Huawei pledged to continue promoting the inclusion of innovative 5G solutions for Industry 4.0 infrastructure in the Global Alliance on AI for Industry and Manufacturing (AIM Global) launched by the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO).
Vicky Zhang, deputy director of Huawei's Global Corporate Communications Department, said that in the fourth year of commercial use of 5G, innovative applications integrating 5G, AI and cloud computing technologies are being used in various industries, particularly smart manufacturing. . She also noted that there are already mature best practices, such as HESC in Páty, that demonstrate the tangible business and social value of these innovative applications.
"Next, Huawei will work with international organizations such as UNIDO to promote the sharing and application of 5G industrial infrastructure solutions and related capabilities around the world, so as to boost the development of Industry 4.0," Zhang said.
In July this year, Huawei and UNIDO launched AIM Global, which is dedicated to building a platform for collaboration and knowledge sharing and facilitating innovation and application of artificial intelligence technologies in the industrial and manufacturing sectors.
Dr. Ulrike Fasbender, a professor at the University of Hohenheim in Germany, sees HESC as an excellent example of rapid development and innovation driven by digitalization. He said: "The impact of digital solutions such as augmented reality and autonomous forklifts enabled by 5G connectivity are a real game-changer for workplaces. If used correctly, these technologies allow employees to solve tasks more efficient and, at the same time, protect them from strenuous and unhealthy tasks. This improvement in working conditions will be crucial for employability as the average age of the working population increases."
Dr. Fasbender said countries and companies that do not make good use of technology will lose their competitiveness in the digital economy, and that an economy can only remain dynamic if it revolves around ecosystems that serve the industry.
Sandor Papp, Deputy Director of HESC, said: "HESC first deployed 5G-powered automation solutions in late 2019. Since then, we have integrated a dedicated core network with the local edge computing system to realize autonomous forklifts and complete automation of the entire logistics system. In addition, AI-powered quality control and AR-assisted remote maintenance have improved the logistics efficiency of our entire campus by 20%, greatly improving Huawei's ability to serve its European customers. ".
"Going forward, Huawei will leverage its strengths in R&D, digital technologies and supply chains to strengthen collaboration with all supply chain players. We will also help empower local businesses to improve the adoption of digital and smart technologies during its production and operations, so that together we can achieve high-quality development," he added.
Headquartered in Hungary, HESC is Huawei's largest supply center outside China and is responsible for the supply of Huawei products to more than 50 countries in Europe, Central Asia and North Africa. The center handles between 50,000 and 60,000 items each month and transports an average of 400 cubic meters of outbound cargo transported by 30 trucks each day.
