These are some examples:
AIV stands for Autonomous Intralogistics.
AIV (Automated Intelligent Vehicle) with tailored Autonomous Intralogistics and a software solution provided via 5G network and distributed intelligence accomplished through cloud-edge architecture. This aids in real-time judgments, allowing the vehicle to travel independently and arrive at the desired place while dynamically re-routing itself when encountered with barriers. These solutions may be used in a variety of industries, including smart manufacturing, smart retail, and smart cities.
A real-time tv-ultrasound technology powered by a 5G network and artificial intelligence (AI) that conducts preliminary diagnostic for remote medical help. This equips primary care clinics with the platform capabilities to maximise patient health checks while providing a variety of remote healthcare advantages.
Worker Safety Through Smart Surveillance
A real-time surveillance solution powered by 5G/Edge that performs intelligent monitoring and analysis to track and report security breaches, deaths, and other safety problems to the factory command and control centre through dashboards and real-time alerts. Smart industries and smart buildings can benefit from such technologies.
A 5G-enabled augmented reality platform that allows shoppers to virtually evaluate things before making a purchase decision. These solutions may be used in a variety of industries, including fashion, retail, education, media, and telemedicine.
