5G is analyzed as a critical enabler of key use cases across transformational technology paradigms like robotics and Augmented Reality (AR)/Virtual Reality (VR) and verticals like automotive and smart cities. How can the new capabilities offered by 5G networks in terms of throughput, bandwidth, latency, and flexibility be mapped to the expanding set of requirements imposed by vertical markets? Which deployment timelines can realistically be expected?

  • 5G technology-enabled resilience strategies for smart cities: from data capture to closed-loop response modes
  • Low-latency 5G safety use cases for automotive, including Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) and remote control and monitoring of driverless and emergency vehicles
  • Role of 5G for mobile robot and drone applications like delivery and surveillance
  • AR/VR user interface requirements across infotainment and safety applications and use cases (e.g., automotive heads-up displays, city infrastructure maintenance, etc.)
  • Role of private cellular networks for critical communications
