Use cases: Navantia and R.C Deportivo de la Coruña
We collaborate with Telefónica in this project with the implantation of two use cases:
- The first one is aimed at Industry 4.0 and framed by Navantia Astillero 4.0 digitalization plan, aiming at remote technical assistance to machines in production with augmented reality and 3D models. This includes the visualization of virtual pieces in situ to identify possible problems and 3D streaming in real time to validate with exactitude the constructed blocks of the ship.
- The second is developed with the R.C Deportivo de A Coruña. It aims to produce sports events with the club and implement the TV5G solution in the Riazor stadium and in the sports city that the Dépor operates in Abegondo (A Coruña) to serve both the professional broadcast and the user via 5G.
