WINGS' Participation in the 9th IEEE World Forum on the Internet of Things 2023

Our project coordinator Dr Nelly Giannopoulou was invited as a speaker at the 9th IEEE World Forum on Internet of Things. The presentation took place on October 19, 2023 in the Logistics session of the Industry Forum and was entitled “5G powered logistics optimisation for Industry 4.0”. 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.
