Nokia and NTT DoCoMo to use 5G and AI to monitor workers

Artificial intelligence

If your performance review isn’t going as expected, look for a power cord to pull.

In their facilities and production areas Telco equipment maker Nokia, Japanese telco NTT DoCoMo and the industrial automation company Omron have agreed to run 5G experiments.

The trial will focus on pairing 5G and artificial intelligence to generate’ real-time coaching’ for employees.

“An AI-based system that provides information on their performance based on an assessment of their movement is used for monitoring machine operators,” Nokia stated in a declaration.

“This helps to better train technicians by detecting and analyzing the movement differences between more skilled and less qualified staff.” The study will also test the reliability of 5G in the movement of individuals and the background noise of equipment. The Trio will also test whether “Autonomous Mobile Robots layout-free manufacturing lines” are viable.

“This trial will enable us to tackle some of manufacturers ‘ major problems today,” said Nokia Japan Chairman and CEO John Harrington. “While consumers experience mobile communication quicker and more quickly, manufacturers will benefit most from 5G,” said Telstra, CEO of the network company Channa Seneviratne, “Production lines will be more flexible and adaptable and efficiency on the factory ground can be enhanced more readily.”

One of Telstra’s clients, Australian building company Taylor said that it is looking at the use of sensors to provide information on concrete ratings and customer weaknesses once they are finished.

Technologies that enable intelligent sensors and increased reality to be incorporated into the construction structure themselves are being looked at,” said Taylor IT Manager Christian Neyle.

“So that the client can accompany their iPads and view the structural steel behind the walls even after passing through the builder’s cycle, they can see the data and effectively monitor concrete gradients, and find out if any flaws that could be observed previously in the process.
