5G edge computing on Campus
An important part of ‘tactile internet’ is low response time between peripherals and application. The promise of low latency within 5G can be realized by a combination of flexible transmission intervals in the 5G new radio protocol and by making use of the possibility of mobile edge in the 5G new radio protocol and by making use of the possibility of mobile edge computing capability. 5G low latency is achieved by reducing the distance between the peripheral and the application.
This project will focus on the elaboration of relevant aspects for 5G edge computing. At TU Delft, proof of concept will be implemented. We will setup the infrastructure to support edge computing. We’ll also aim to build an “open edge”, to provide access for third party applications. Furthermore, we will test and implement specific use cases that improve education and research. Robotics, augmented reality and remote research with haptic feedback are examples of this.
