Real-time Smart Far­ming with 5G

AIN is te­sting a lo­gi­stics net­work in the Leip­zig North area.

AIN ad­dres­ses the re­se­arch, te­sting, and stan­dar­diz­a­ti­on of 5G-ba­sed ser­vices in pu­blic mo­bi­le net­works, tailo­red to the re­qui­re­ments of in­du­stry and pu­blic ser­vices for re­gio­nal and cross-re­gio­nal lo­gi­stics ap­p­li­ca­ti­ons. The goal is to crea­te a 5G re­se­arch and te­sting net­work in the Leip­zig North area, cha­rac­te­ri­zed by lo­gi­stics traf­fic and au­to­mo­bi­le pro­duc­tion, whe­re pro­fes­sio­nal in­du­stri­al and go­vern­men­tal 5G com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on ser­vices can be te­sted and eva­lua­ted in a pu­blic mo­bi­le in­fra­st­ruc­tu­re and un­der real con­di­ti­ons. A to­tal of 14 Tri5G use ca­ses, re­qui­ring 5G and mo­bi­le edge com­pu­ting tech­no­lo­gies, are being in­ve­sti­ga­ted and spe­cia­li­zed 5G ser­vices, re­qui­red qua­li­ty of ser­vice pro­files, and their im­ple­men­ta­ti­on in lo­gi­stics-spe­ci­fic 5G net­work sli­ces are being de­ve­lo­ped. The ap­p­li­ca­ti­ons are di­vi­ded into the ca­te­go­ries of “Con­nec­ted Dri­ving”, “Au­to­ma­ted Dro­nes” and “Tracking, Mo­ni­to­ring, IoT & Main­ten­an­ce” and ad­dress the three mo­des of trans­port road, rail and air.

Tri5G main­ly di­stin­guis­hes bet­ween dif­fe­rent lo­ca­ti­ons and rou­tes along which lo­gi­stics ap­p­li­ca­ti­ons must be ef­fec­ti­ve. In this case, the di­stinc­tion is made bet­ween on-cam­pus, in­ter-cam­pus and off-cam­pus ap­p­li­ca­ti­ons. The Tri5G pro­ject aims to show how pu­blic 5G net­works can be en­ab­led to crea­te vir­tu­al re­gio­nal net­works. The­se should be able to meet the re­qui­re­ments of in­du­stri­al lo­gi­stics ap­p­li­ca­ti­ons as well as pu­blic ser­vice ap­p­li­ca­ti­ons. The cam­pus net­work so­lu­ti­on should en­ab­le cross-en­ter­pri­se and cross-lo­ca­ti­on seam­less net­wor­king along dif­fe­rent lo­gi­stics chains. In par­ti­cu­lar, in the case of in­ter-cam­pus ap­p­li­ca­ti­ons, aspects are to be worked out and ex­ami­ned that con­si­der mu­tu­al in­flu­ence and pos­si­b­ly re­qui­red han­do­ver stra­te­gies. The­se come into play when using vir­tu­al pri­va­te cam­pus net­work ser­vices (in pu­blic mo­bi­le net­works) and cam­pus net­work ser­vices in clo­sed (non-pu­blic) 5G cam­pus networks.

Real-time Smart Far­ming with 5G

AI is con­duc­ting real-time net­wor­ked sy­stems and pro­ces­ses of Smart Far­ming (SF) using 5G in or­der to pro­vi­de a pre­vious­ly un­avail­ab­le in­for­ma­ti­on base for de­ci­si­on-ma­king in agri­cul­tu­re that is cri­ti­cal for suc­cess and sustaina­bi­li­ty. Spe­ci­fi­cal­ly, the pro­ject de­mon­stra­tes the po­ten­ti­al of 5G in agri­cul­tu­re un­der rea­li­stic con­di­ti­ons by using the smart fer­ti­liz­a­ti­on use case. En­vi­ron­men­tal and plant data are collec­ted and trans­mit­ted to the Edge-Cloud, which is the core ele­ment of the 5G-Pre­CiSe en­vi­ron­ment, using sen­sors immedia­te­ly be­fo­re and du­ring the fer­ti­liz­a­ti­on pro­cess. Using ad­di­tio­nal data from va­rious sources (e.g. sa­tel­li­te images) and si­mu­la­ti­on mo­dels, the Edge-Cloud cal­cu­la­tes the op­ti­mal fer­ti­li­zer needs for the ma­nage­ment zone cur­r­ent­ly being tra­ver­sed by the far­ming ma­chi­ne through rule al­go­rith­ms and feeds the in­for­ma­ti­on back to the far­ming machine.

For this pro­cess to oc­cur from data collec­tion to fer­ti­liz­a­ti­on in real-time, 5G is re­qui­red as a fast com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on me­di­um. In the pro­ject, smart fer­ti­liz­a­ti­on ser­ves as an ex­em­pla­ry use case. In ad­di­ti­on, using 5G, the con­cepts de­ve­lo­ped in the pro­ject for con­nec­ting sen­sors, ac­tua­tors, data sources, cloud ser­vices, and si­mu­la­ti­on mo­dels in a data mesh will be ex­ten­ded to other use ca­ses in agriculture.
