5G is a wireless technology that is about to dramatically raise the bandwidth of cellular connections. So far, it’ hasn’t been in wide use, but Whirlpool is deploying it at one of its plants to overcome the shortcomings of Wi-Fi that is being used to guide driverless vehicles at the facility. This article presents the problems as stated by Whirlpool and its solution as described by collaborators AT&T and Seegrid that are installing the 5G gear. It adds context about the current status of 5G and the prospects Whirlpool has for its further use in other facilities and for other purposes.
