On 27 February 2024, the participants of the VISA/5G project met at Luleå University of Technology. As the project has gained momentum, much attention was paid during the meeting to the configuration of the industrial application of 5G. This application will be tested and evaluated in an industrial use case to illustrate the practical impact of the work. In addition, topics such as the evaluation of hardware as well as tasks related to analysing the required architecture and performance requirements for substation automation in the energy sector were addressed. The participants also took the opportunity to visit some of the labs at the university, namely the Industry 4.0 lab and the EMC lab, to further explore possible collaborations.


14-16 May 2024, Luleå
The project will participate in a co-organised stand during the Demo North Summit, a platform that brings together actors working on developing innovations for large-scale solutions and helping to improve opportunities for environmental challenges.
