The 5TONIC 5G co-creation laboratory in Madrid, together with some of its member companies, has been awarded a vital role in three high-profile EU-sponsored 5G development projects. The awards cement the laboratory’s position as one of Europe’s foremost 5G digital innovation centers.

The 5TONIC co-creation and research laboratory near Madrid, Spain, has collaborated with Autonomously Guided Vehicle (AGV) specialist ASTI Mobile Robotics to launch a series of tests that demonstrate 5G technology could be used to drive AGVs around large factories without the need for pre-set routes or tracks to follow.

Innovative wireless data company Luz Wavelabs has become a new collaborator within 5TONIC’s 5G research and co-creation laboratory in Madrid.  The company joins existing collaborators that include ASTI Mobile Robotics, IFEMA, and Rohde & Schwarz.  

Two more companies have joined the specialist 5G mobile research and innovation laboratory in Spain called 5TONIC.  Altran and Red Hat are the latest companies to become members of the 5TONIC initiative joining existing companies such as Telefónica, Intel and Ericsson. 

Don’t worry, 5TONIC has not branched out into fashion design.  However, one test this laboratory of 5G excellence co-founded and hosted by IMDEA Networks is running in its research premises involves a partnership with Madrid’s emergency services team to put smart sensors into a tee-shirt that could then monitor the vital signs of people suffering from known, life-threatening, conditions.
