As the Internet of Things (IoT) continues to take shape, promising widespread automation and data exchange, one of the biggest challenges is to act on the data generated. The amount of data collected is huge, the computational power required for processing is high, and the algorithms are complex. The EU-funded VEDLIoT project develops an IoT platform that uses deep learning algorithms distributed throughout the IoT continuum. The proposed new platform with innovative IoT architecture is expected to bring significant benefits to a large number of applications, including industrial robots, self-driving cars, and smart homes. The project offers an Open Call at project midterm, incorporating additional VEDLIoT-related industrial use-cases in the project, increasing the market readiness of the VEDLIoT solutions.
The industrial use case employs DL-based solutions for motor condition monitoring and for arc detection, involving different challenges concerning the usage of DL models. In the former case it is necessary to comply with a ultra-low energy budget, and in the latter it is necessary to ensure a very low false-negative error rate.
The automotive use-case focuses on increasing the processing efficiency DL tasks over the resources that are present in the traffic environment. This will be achieved through distribution of the processing tasks over resources such as the ego vehicle, cellular base station(s) in the close proximity, as well as the cloud.
In the home domain, VEDLIoT will consider a virtual mirror application in which it will be necessary to deploy the software and execute DNN models on different kinds of hardware, namely at the edge (t.RECS) and on a specialized embedded platform (µ.RECS).
We are happy to announce that our colleagues from LASIGE, at the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon, won the best paper award at SRDS'21 for a paper that they co-authored, entitled "Making Reads in BFT State Machine Replication Fast, Linearizable, and...
