Manufacturing Summit - The lights are out, but the robots are home. Deploying the smart factory


Tue, 27 Feb: 11:00 - 12:00 CEST

Pre-registered & Approved have priority


Connected Industries, Hall 4

Session Description

A ‘lights out’ factory is manufacturing facility that can operate without human intervention, typically relying on automation and robotics for production, and therefore not needing the facilities that humans would require, such as lighting.  The same technologies capable of running the lights out factory are also driving digital transformation across the industrial sector. Industrial Robots, Machine Vision, Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs), Internet of Things (IoT) Sensors, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning, are being deployed wirelessly with 5G technologies, to build smart factories and warehouses.  The aim is to reduce cost, improve production efficiency, safety, supply chain resilience, and achieve sustainability.​


In this session, we welcome experts from across the sector to bring their experience of how to approach a smart factory deployment. What are the key factors to consider for connectivity, security and ensuring the deployment is fit for purpose?


*We are anticipating a busy MWC Barcelona, so seats will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Therefore, please ensure you make your way to your desired sessions early
