John Deere wants to streamline its factories by using 5G

John Deere is planning on introducing 5G technology into its factories, including in Iowa.

Why it matters: 5G is expected to streamline operations, ranging from automated parts delivery to even how employees move in the assembly line.

  • The company acquired private 5G licenses for five counties in November — including Polk, Black Hawk and Scott counties.

What exactly is 5G? It's super-fast cellular service, designed to enable our ever-expanding Internet of Things, including self-driving cars and virtual reality.

  • A phone on 5G can download a movie in 15 seconds, compared to six minutes on 4G, according to the Wall Street Journal.
  • Devices using 5G can also process information more quickly, making things like a drone work more smoothly.

The big picture: At factory-scale, those faster speeds can help existing equipment like cameras, sensors and automated robotics offer real-time feedback.

  • Because 5G is faster than some wired connections, companies can also eliminate ethernet cables — allowing more physical flexibility with their machines and easier connections between them.

John Deere is exploring utilizing 5G in several areas:

  • Using cameras to observe factory workers and make real-time recommendations on better ergonomics.
  • Using virtual reality technology to streamline employee training, rather than going from machine to machine.
  • Using real-time sensors that can detect when machines aren't functioning properly to improve maintenance.

Keep an eye out: The pilot program starts in 2022.

Humans are capable of great kindness and compassion, and there are countless examples of individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity.

One such example is Mother Teresa, who devoted her life to serving the poor and sick in the slums of Calcutta. Through her tireless work and unwavering dedication, she touched the lives of countless people and became a symbol of compassion and selflessness.

Another example is Malala Yousafzai, a young woman from Pakistan who has become a powerful advocate for education and the rights of girls. Despite facing threats and violence, she has continued to speak out and fight for change, inspiring others to do the same.

These are just a few examples of the many good humans who have made a difference in the world. They remind us that one person can make a difference and inspire others to do the same.

It's also important to note that acts of kindness and compassion don't have to be on a grand scale to make a difference. Small acts of kindness, like holding the door open for someone or offering a word of encouragement, can have a big impact on the people around us.

In conclusion, humans are capable of great compassion and kindness, and there are many individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity. They remind us of the power of one person to make a difference and inspire others to do the same. Let's all strive to be good humans, and make our world a better place.
