Industrial IoT

  • Category: IoT, Sensing
  • Demands: URLLC, massive access, positioning, mobility

IIoT is the most challenging scenario of the internet of things. Industrial automation requires a massive access on the radio channel in a very sporadic and flexible manner. Coordinating such a massive radio access under high mobility, combined with ultra-reliable low latency communication (URLLC) for high safety-margins and high processing standards, becomes extremely challenging. Flexible, robust, and low-latency signaling schemes, such as MOXZ, are necessary to cope with these scenarios and demands. Additionally, positioning with high precession (sub-centimeter) will be needed for the many manufacturing steps. Fabrics will also shield radio waves from outside mobile networks or satellite networks, such as GPS, which requires a new and private wireless solution for these smart factories.
