Last week the winners of the 5G Robotics Challenge, sponsored by Verizon and Ericsson, participated in a showcase to demo their projects. This first-of-its-kind challenge asked teams to create 5G-powered solutions in three key areas: industrial automation, collaborative robotics (cobots), and warehouse automation. The winners were comprised of university teams from Northeastern, and University of Massachusetts Lowell, as well as four start-ups, including: Ava Robotics, GreenSight, RealBotics, and Southie Autonomy.

Winners of the 5G Challenge each received $30,000 to create insights, develop new use cases, and conceive innovative products that will advance the robotics industry by leveraging the unique speed, bandwidth and latency benefits of Verizon’s 5G technology and Mobile Edge Compute.
