IEEE International Symposium on Personal, Indoor and Mobile Radio Communications
5–8 September 2023 // Toronto, ON, Canada

Vision and challenges of wireless communication for future industrial IoT

Industry 4.0 is evolving through the digital transformation of manufacturing processes to bridge the physical and digital worlds through cyber-physical systems. The development towards Industry 5.0 has also been initiated that emphasizes sustainability, resilience, and a human-centric approach. The next generation of wireless technologies is envisioned to intelligently interconnect humans and machines from the physical world and their digital representations in
the virtualized digital world. Advancements in cloud and edge computing, artificial intelligence, and robotics, also opens new dimensions in revolutionizing these processes. Moreover, digital twinning of the physical entities enables support for engineering, maintenance, reconfiguration, and recycling of industrial automation systems. Accordingly, numerous visionary use cases are expected to emerge requiring deterministic communication capabilities. The challenge of deterministic and bounded low-latency communication is being addressed by standardization bodies such as IEEE 802.1, IETF DetNet, 3GPP time-sensitive communication, and industrial alliances such as 5G-ACIA. Ultra-reliable and low-latency communication has been an important aspect of 5G communication that enables the support for determinism and integration with deterministic communication technologies and will further be developed under the 6G vision. The global Industry 4.0/5.0 market is expected to gain momentum by 2028, however, their application requirements are one of the most challenging for wireless systems. Therefore, innovation is needed in all supporting technologies. Communication through 6G technologies will enable and foster the development of technologies for multiple industry verticals and is going to play a key role in improving system efficiency and availability.
This workshop as in initiative of European Cooperation in Science & Technology (COST) The Intelligence-Enabling Radio Communications for Seamless Inclusive Interactions (INTERACT) and EU funded SNS project DETERMINISTIC6G that aims at understanding the trends and vision of industry 5.0 use cases and corresponding latest developments in wireless communications. In this workshop, we seek paper submission in relevant fields, including the following:

• Vision and requirements of high demanding industry 5.0 use cases
• Advancements in wireless communications for cyber-physical system applications
• Communications technologies enabling human-machine interaction and their continuum with the virtual world through digital twins
