DKE confirms missing wireless technologies

Industry 4.0 remains a vision without an innovation offensive in the field of wireless systems. VDE warns that the requirements for latency, reliability, range, fault tolerance, security and localization possibilities are so high that they cannot be met with currently available wireless technologies for the addressed variety of industrial application scenarios. The new VDE position paper “Radio technology for Industry 4.0” recommends a targeted strategy for innovation, marketing, cooperation and standardization.
