  Novel orchestration architectures for 5G networks have primarily focused on enhancing Quality of Service, yet have neglected to address Quality of Experience concerns. Consequently, these systems struggle with intent recogni-tion and End-to-End interpretability, resulting in the possibility of suboptimal control policies being developed. The 5G-ERA project has proposed and demonstrated an AI-driven intent-based networking solution for autonomous robots to address this issue. Specifically, the proposed solution employs a work-flow consisting of four tools - Action Sequence Generation, Network Intent Es-timation, Resource Usage Forecasting, and OSM Control Policy Generation - to map an individual vertical action's intent to a global OSM control policy. The paper describes how the 5G-ERA platform enables the onboarding and control of 5G-enabled robots and how we demonstrate the platform’s capabilities through the project’s use cases.
