Dino Flore is Vice President of Technology at Qualcomm Europe, Inc., where he is responsible for the leadership, strategy, development and implementation of multiple technologies. He will be delivering a presentation at the IFA + Summit entitled, “5G – Driving Smart Mobility.” We asked him to tell us a little about his talk.

I will cover the accelerated commercialisation of 5G technology we are witnessing today and the impact it has, not just on mobile, but other areas such as Internet of Things (IoT) and Automotive, to name but a few. 5G is here. It’s the foundational technology that makes it possible for everything and everyone to communicate and interact seamlessly, across industrial IoT, connected cars, smart homes and smart cities, networking, and mobility. The opportunities for 5G are boundless. It will be a platform for innovation in ways we cannot yet imagine.

Can you expand on how 5G will impact industry?

The industrial sector is undergoing a digital transformation. 5G will allow factories to become increasingly wireless, interconnecting machines, robots, controllers, sensors, and many other devices needed in an industrial environment. Combining 5G connectivity capabilities with computing capabilities such as machine learning, digital twin, XR, CV, and collaborative robots will bring new levels of performance and efficiencies enabling benefits such as flexible manufacturing and predictive maintenance.

Can you tell us a little about your work with the 5G Automotive Association?

The 5G Automotive Association (5GAA) is a global, cross-industry organisation that brings the automotive, information, and communications technologies (ICT) industries together to develop end-to-end connectivity solutions for intelligent transportation, mobility systems, and smart cities. Qualcomm was instrumental in setting this up, and we hugely support the combined input and efforts of multiple ecosystem members.
