Dr Zilong Liu (University of Surrey) gave an invited talk on "From Sequences to Codebooks: Code-Domain NOMA for Massive Connectivity" at the 16th IEEE Asia Pacific Wireless Communications Symposium, APWCS 2019, which was held at Singapore Univerisy of Technology and Design, Singapore, between August 28th and August 30th, 2019. The symposium is usually devoted to advances in wireless communications and networking, and the topic of the talk around enabling massive connectivity was very well received.
Colleagues from TNO and Wings prepared and presented "5G Radio Network for Smart Manufacturing" at the Factory of the Future Community days 2019, in Brussels. Clear5G was represented by collegues from NTU Taiwan, TNO, Wings and CEA-Leti from the European partners side.
The presentation will be made available.
Clear 5G will have a strong presence at the forthcoming EUCNC in Valencia, Spain in June 2019. We will be showing some of our findings and developments in our demo booth, will be c0-running a workshop, and we have four research papers accepted for presentation. Visit our booth at EUCNC to see what we have been up to so far!
The team visited the Anest Iwata factory in Hsinchu County, Taiwan. The team reviewed the demo area in the factory and small technology tests on UE relaying were undertaken.
The Clear5G team is holding their plenary meeting in Taiwan from 19th to 21st of March 2019. On the first day the progress on the technical items and the integration into the different use cases is being discussed. On the second day the team visits the trails site at Anest Iwata and on teh third day the technical meeting continues and will conclude with the planning for the remaining project duration.
The Technical Manager of Clear5G, Dr Haibin Zhang (TNO) has been invited as visiting Professor by the Graduate Institute of Communication Engineering in the Department of Electrical Engineering, National Taiwan University, Taiwan.
The Clear5G team met for a preparation meeting and the. first year project review at the start of December 2018 in Vienna, Austria. The meeting was co-located with ICT 2018: Imagine Digital - Connect Europe event. The reviewers included experts from both Europe as well as Taiwan.
The Clear5G team is holding their plenary meeting in Taiwan from 17th to 20th of July. The first two days are to discuss the technical progress and next steps towards the integration of the different research outcomes into the Clear5G system definition and eventually the proof of concept demonstrators. On the third day, the team will visit a factory site where the FoF demo will be set up and trialled.
Clear5G and the approach we are taking was presented by our project leader, Klaus Moessner, University of Surrey, at the "Multi-provider, multi-vendor, multi-player orchestration: from distributed cloud to edge and fog environments in 5G" workshop (3) at EuCNC2018 in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
The discusion following the presentation was around the requirements that future manufacturing will raise towards the wireless comms systems taht will facilitate the flexibility needed for highly adaptable manufacturing environments.
