Remote operations of mobile machinery require reliable and flexible wireless communication. 5G networks will provide ultra-reliable and low latency wireless communications upon whichremote operations, real-time control and data acquisition can be implemented. In this paper we present a demonstration system and first experiments for remote mobile machinery control system utilizing 5G radio and a digital twin with a hardware-in-the-loop development system. Our experimental results indicate that with a suitable edge computing architecture an order of magnitude improvement in delay and jitter over exiting LTE infrastructure can be expected from future 5G networks.
