The Roaming Edge

Suman Banerjee, Professor, University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA; Visiting Professor IMDEA Networks; Chair of Excellence University Carlos III of Madrid - Banco Santander, Spain
30 Jan 2019 - 14:00 (Madrid Time)

Edge computing provides a new way to implement services with many unique advantages. While many edge computing solutions have been implemented within different network infrastructures, in this talk, we will explore the “roaming" edge of the Internet --- in vehicles -- where computing services are increasingly important, and appropriate edge capabilities need to be rolled out. We will describe a few vehicular applications often with significant needs of audio-visual processing, and describe an edge platform for vehicles to meet such goals.
