Automotive component manufacturer, Hitachi Astemo, is continually exploring innovative solutions to help its customers improve quality, efficiency, and productivity. The company’s research and engineering teams wanted to explore potential use cases for 5G technology in the manufacturing industry and engaged Ericsson and AWS to collaborate in that effort. After identifying several potential use cases for 5G-enabled computer vision, Hitachi, Ericsson, and AWS set up a trial of a model private 5G wireless infrastructure at Hitachi Astemo’s manufacturing plant in Kentucky.

Leveraging Ericsson 5G radios, AWS edge-to-cloud technologies, and Hitachi video analytics, the trial determined that 5G provides stable, reliable connectivity for manufacturing use cases leveraging AI and ML models. The trial also showed that a 5G infrastructure with edge and cloud technologies could scale effectively across multiple global manufacturing sites quickly and cost-effectively.

In this webinar, we’ll explore the journey Hitachi, Ericsson and AWS went through to demonstrate how defects can be detected earlier in the assembly process for greater quality assurance and the potential for significant cost savings by reducing waste.

  • Learn how machine vision leveraging a private 5G wireless network and cloud technologies can outperform manual inspections for detecting defects, and reveal insights that could have much broader implications for manufacturers over the long term.
  • Learn why 5G is a stable, reliable network for manufacturing use cases leveraging AI and ML models.
  • Learn why the combination of 5G and cloud technologies is now making full-scale, global deployment of digital production line applications viable—from defect detection and quality inspection to robotics automation, real-time machine control, augmented reality, and more.
