AI-based Robotic Logistics Transportation Solution

Vision AI scans and identifies irregularly shaped and differently sized boxes on the conveyor with a 3D camera, calculates the path of the robot arm to move the boxes on the conveyor to the pallet, and delivers it to the robot. The 3D camera scan data and robot control commands are transmitted through a private 5G network.

It is expected to reduce the labor load of warehouse workers engaged in the logistics industry and improve stability and productivity through automation and unmanned operation of high-intensity simple labor in the logistics system. 
It can replace manual labor and operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

5G-based remote surgical training 

The surgeon's operation room is captured utilizing high-definition immersive video such as AR glasses, an endoscope, and a 360-degree camera, and then streamed to a medical education platform through a private 5G network.

In the professor's office, a specialist watches the video and guides the surgery (remote cooperative surgery). Students in the seminar room can see the live surgical video while also learning from the specialist's guidance(real-time remote surgical training).

(1) Unmanned patrol: A driverless autonomous vehicle patrols predefined routes and sends real-time driving information (location coordinates, vehicle status) and outside-vehicle video to the autonomous driving control system on the MEC through a private 5G network. The system displays the vehicle's location, vehicle status, and outside-vehicle video on the monitoring screen.
(2) Remote driving: If an emergency occurs during an unmanned patrol, the driving mode is switched from autonomous driving to remote driving. For example, if AI Vision detects birds, the remote driver in the remote cockpit drives the vehicle to the bird infestation area, and the vehicle emits ultrasonic waves to repel the birds (the bird repeller is mounted on the vehicle).

 


(3) AI Vision: CCTV camera video is streamed in real time over a private 5G network to the AI Vision application on the MEC, which detects birds, fires, and access to unauthorized areas and sends an alarm to the monitoring and control center.

processed in the cloud through a private 5G network with ultra-low latency.
- Since the robot has fewer processing units, it lowers manufacturing costs and runs longer with less battery consumption.
