This session will encourage audience participation, discussion and interaction through a series of live Q&A chats and polls. Modern high-tech factories are large, complex and dynamic environments that require ultra-reliable high performance wireless communication networks to make them “smart”.
Electromagnetic simulation is an essential tool for the design of a robust wireless communication infrastructure. This workshop will discuss how to use simulation to ensure reliable connections that are resilient to factory reconfiguration and the movement of equipment and people.
Substantial challenges are also posed by having to accommodate multiple communication standards, operating across multiple frequency bands. Catering for multiple standards may result in interference between radio systems.
This virtual workshop will discuss:
- Simulation techniques and workflows required for antenna and array design
- How to analyze and resolve interference issues
- Placement of antennas: in large environments like the factory, hybrid-solver techniques are unavoidable for dealing with challenging multi-scale problems
- Applicable standards for keeping human exposure to electromagnetic fields within acceptable limits
- How simulation can support network designers to ensure a safe working environment in which electromagnetic exposure is kept below legal limits
Who should attend:
- Electromagnetic software users
