5GSmartFact is an MSCA-ITN project funded by the EU whose objective is to study, develop, optimize and assess the deployment of 5G networks that target the IIoT requirements (in terms of availability, ultra-low latency, reliability, amount of supported devices, localization accuracy and energy efficiency) in factory environments, and exploit them to integrate factory applications (especially those related to robot-control and robot navigation) which might lead to a complete redesign of networked robot architectures and hence to a leap forward in the industry automation .

5GSmartFact has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement ID 956670
