Edge Digital Twins on MEC software architectures
Digital Twins are becoming an increasingly relevant engineering paradigm for pervasive systems such as smart cities. Centralised approaches to deliver DTs, such as Cloud-based ones, suffer of high-latency and high bandwidth consumption, as well as pose privacy risks to users. An Edge-based solution can overcome all these limitations.
Join us in this event, where Marco Picone and Stefano Mariani from Unimore propose to deploy Digital Twins of vehicles and road elements at the Edge, on top of a MEC infrastructure, as the basic bricks on top of which engineering efficient and performant solutions could be developed to address smart cities issues. For instance, mobility issues such as congested intersections, limited parking availability, and traffic overflow affect all major cities worldwide.
