In this session, we present a novel software ecosystem, developed within the European-funded project ELASTIC, capable of exploiting the distributed computing capabilities of the compute continuum of the smart city, while guaranteeing additional properties, known as non-functional requirements of the system: the real-time, energy, communication quality and security. We further discuss how this design will be adopted and tested in a real-life mobility use case aiming to improve safety, efficiency and maintenance of the transportation network in the city of Florence.
The objectives of this session are to:
- Present next-generation urban mobility applications for tramway solutions and their potential benefits for all involved stakeholders (public sector, transport operators, citizens, etc.)
- Discuss the design of an extreme-scale analytics platform over a heterogeneous and distributed computing infrastructure for both data-in-motion and data-at-rest analytics
- Present the ELASTIC solution, bringing together the edge and cloud paradigms into a unified software ecosystem that fully exploits the compute continuum
