On its 5GNow event, Ericsson showed a range of potential use cases for 5g networks.

Robotics for older people were included as one of the potential use case applications and MARIO project was presented as an example that could be enhanced with cloud-based processing and connectivity - enabled by edge-based 5G networks - to provide greater location and environmental awareness, prolong battery life and enable it to carry out more complex tasks.
