It’s been a long time coming, but the good news is finally here. This powerful French consortium is joining forces with Firecell in an innovative 5G geolocation project : GEO5G, laureate of the French government’s 5G acceleration plan.
The government issued a call for projects dedicated to the telecom industry to support projects based on 5G technology. The French state supports the best R&D projects, investments and implementation of 5G experimentation, in order to accelerate applications to vertical markets.
Based on the latest 3GPP release applied to Industry 4.0, this industry-wide collaboration will set new standards in the field of indoor mapping and navigation, find out how below.
Firecell’s GEO5G project is a revolutionary innovation in the world of geolocation. It combines the most advanced 5G technology with cutting-edge indoor positioning methods to provide users with accurate maps and navigation indoors (geofencing), for enterprises of all sizes.
This will allow users to:
How the consortium is collaborating
The GEO5G project will enable the accurate positioning of people and assets indoors, regardless of where they are in the building.
Concretely, with the GEO5G system, you can establish a precise location of tools and operations with an anti-lapse system, improve the traceability of the manufacturing process on aeronautical assembly lines, or even ensure the safety of technicians or operators in a potentially risky robotic environment.
A 5G private network provides a robust solution: real-time geolocation by using sensors embedded within structures, allowing an improvement of the accuracy of the localization system. These innovations allow a sub-meter accuracy, this wasn’t possible before.
This work is based on the Open Air Interface open source platform, which allows for scientific and international dissemination of the project.
