Your future responsibilities

  • Factory communication is facing the leap of the new generation wired and wireless technologies e.g. TSN, WiFi6, 5G, and more, expanding from automation to the IIoT. In this context, this project focuses on theoretic work, simulation and empirical research to use for factory automation 5G and WIFI6 technologies. This will lead to the investigation on requirements and challenges for communication of sensors and actuators used in industrial environments and design of protocols and methodologies for critical control in factory of the future.
