Discover vehicle automation powered by 5G at MWC Barcelona 2023 |

Join Kollmorgen and ek robotics in conjunction with Ericsson at Mobile World Congress (MWC) Barcelona 2023 on February 27 - March 2, one of the largest events for the connectivity ecosystem, where technology, community and commerce converge. Together they will demonstrate how you can benefit from automated guided vehicle (AGV) and mobile robot applications powered by 5G at Ericsson’s booth in Hall 2 Stand 2O60.

Demo story

Kollmorgen – a technology leader in navigation and fleet control of AGVs and Mobile Robots – and Ericsson – one of the leading providers of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) –– have previously conducted tests proving that Kollmorgen’s automation platform runs as stable on Ericsson Private 5G as on Wi-Fi, with a seamless 5G antenna handover. Together with ek robotics – a longtime Kollmorgen partner and leading manufacturer and system integrator of innovative robotics for production and warehouse logistics – they will showcase an industrial AGV running on Ericsson Private 5G at MWC Barcelona 2023.

The demo will show some of the benefits of bringing 5G to the AGV, such as moving AGV logic to the cloud, and augmenting the AGV with additional senses and sensors, allowing it to see around corners and react to obstructions and potential safety risks ahead of time.

AGVs and mobile robots handle logistic flows autonomously, improving the efficiency and flexibility in manufacturing and warehousing without heavy investments. To create large scale AGV systems in line with Industry 4.0 requires stable and future-proof connectivity. 5G networks bring new possibilities to the world of material handling as they can support a larger number of AGVs and connected devices and help manufacturers expand their operations.
