The 5G VIIMA project just launched studies the potential of the developing 5G technology not for personal services, but rather for industrial applications.
-In practice, this means that we take the latest network technology and ICT industry innovations, such as video analytics, sensor systems, autonomous devices and new actuators in, for example, the VR and AR fields and test and study how industrial environments could better utilise digitalisation and wireless techniques. The project aims to create and test solutions that provide real value in industrial use. At the same time, we also analyse the business environment, or the creation of value chains in case of industrial solutions and the management and ownership of the network and data. The project is part of the University of Oulu’s 6G Flagship, the flagship study of the Academy of Finland, explains Olli Liinamaa, the project’s leader.
