Together with the Chair of Digital Communication Systems at Ruhr University Bochum, SMS Digital GmbH, oculavis GmbH and Telekommunikation Mittleres Ruhrgebiet GmbH, PHYSEC GmbH is working on the research project 5G-Furios.

5G-Furios - Resilient and Tactile 5G End-to-End Infrastructure for Privacy- and Safety-Proofed Remote Assistance and Worker Safety. With the enactment of the DSGVO in 2018, the relevance of data protection has been enshrined in law. This is the starting point of the project, which provides for the development and design of a tactile and highly available 5G end-to-end infrastructure for the use cases Remote Assistance as well as Worker Safety. 

The goal of the project is to enable services that rely on guarantees to communications (e.g., latency). An important milestone is to measure maximum latencies for dangerous situations in order to verify which requirement has to be reached for a Safety Proofed Remote Assistance Call. To this end, efficient and effective algorithms for face and person pixelation will be explored. The project also envisages testing and further development of digital systems for operational safety and plant monitoring.
