5G Demo with Ericsson at MWC18
Ericsson, Wandelbots and the TU Dresden presented a robot supported smart sorting machine to highlight the potential of 5G for the industrial internet.
The sorting machine was based on a camera and an image recognition algorithm to distinguish different objects. The camera was taking pictures of the objects in free fall and the software processing the images was hosted in a cloud environment.
New Office and New Member
Between Christmas and New Year we have prepared and furnished our new office at Sherpa.Dresden.
With sweat, tears and a lot of fun we were working hard to have everything ready for the official start of Wandelbots. At the end we created a feel-good-place for coding, making, inventing and relaxing.
