Volvo CE will be among the first in the world to use 5G technology to test remote-controlled machines and autonomous solutions.
The 5G network will be used at Volvo CE’s research and development facility in Eskilstuna to further develop solutions for remote control of construction machinery and fully-automated solutions. It will also be used to increase understanding of how connected machines can create added value for the customer.
“We can see that the industry’s interest in 5G is considerable. Automation of the entire flow will mean new ways of working and greater gains from efficiency. But to connect business-critical machines and vehicles requires a solution that can handle the massive amounts of data with guaranteed connection. That is what 5G can give us. And we are proud to lead the 5G development in Sweden together with our partners,” says Anders Olsson, CEO of Telia Sweden.
