Ultra-reliable and low-latency communication for industrial use case

Ultra-reliable and low latency communication is increasingly an important aspect of future wireless communications. Specifically, in the context of mission critical communications for large-scale networks of sensors and actuators in automated and/or remote-control applications, low-latency wireless communication with high level of determinism is a vital element. The key performance indicators for such use case are in sharp contrast to the current broadband communications, since latency and reliability are paramount but lower data rates can be tolerated. In the context of motion control in industrial automation, ultra-high reliability of nine nines is expected from the communication system in ultra-low latency of one millisecond or less. Such requirements introduce new challenges for the research community that require novel wireless communication solutions to be addressed.
