Red meat industry receives 5G upgrade

Augmented intelligence technology specialist Bondi Labs has teamed up with communications infrastructure provider BAI Communications (BAI) to participate in a ‘groundbreaking’ 5G trial for the Australian red meat processing industry.

BAI said it will design, supply and install a 5G communications network at two of the Australian Meat Processor Corporation’s (AMPC) regional red meat processing facilities to enable smart verification technologies such as high-fidelity video streaming that can be used for remote auditing and compliance monitoring through computer vision technology.

Bondi Labs’ will use the network to support the development and testing of two use cases for what it describes as “the highly regulated red meat processing industry”: SmartInspect and SmartPack. SmartInspect allows meat processing employees, wearing live-video streaming glasses, to participate in remote audits and inspections, and undertake remote equipment maintenance and remote training, delivering significant savings in time and travel.

Meanwhile, SmartPack leverages the power of AI to identify different types of meat products and verify that carton contents exactly match carton labels. This technology reduces the potential for human error by being able to correctly identify a wide range of symbols, including languages that use special characters, such as Mandarin and Japanese.
