VITAL-5G: 5G powered logistics optimization for Industry 4.0

Our project coordinator, Dr. Nelly Giannopoulou, was invited as a speaker at the IEEE Future Networks World Forum 2023 in the Symposium on Future Networks for Connected and Automated Mobility, which took place on November 15th in Baltimore, USA. The scope of the presentation was to highlight the challenges that the logistics sector is facing as well as the accomplishments achieved by VITAL-5G and the WINGSChariot solution, that was partially developed in the scope of the project, in the area of warehouse logistics leveraging on AGVs and Network Applications. Particular focus was given to the identification of deployment challenges and how these were addressed through the implementation of autonomous and collaborative AGV operations facilitated by 5G-enabled applications to achieve the “lean warehousing” concept.
