Exelonix joins R&D Project on 5G Network for Construction Sites

The aim of the project is the research and development of networked construction site processes and machine technologies based on flexible and powerful communication solutions for implementing the Industry 4.0 guiding principles on construction sites. The result is a uniform 5G reference architecture for a heterogeneous building landscape, which, depending on the application, ideally covers the various requirements for wireless networking on the construction site through the flexible use of different access technologies. The consortium is developing suitable localization, recognition, operating and assistance concepts for integrating construction equipment, materials and, in particular, humans into the digitized construction site that is changing as a result, and is developing automation-compatible drive and control technologies for the machines on the construction site.
