Title: Characterizing control loops over Ultra-Reliable and Low-Latency Wireless Communication
Abstract: The established wireless networking standards for industrial automation, WirelessHART and ISA-100 have been used widely for control and monitoring applications adopted in the previous years. However, they both rely on centralized network configuration and resource management that comes with large overhead for collecting network health information and disseminating routing graphs and transmission schedules to nodes, and the times required for a node to join a WirelessHART network can be substantial. Moreover, D2D communication cannot be supported by them because all data must pass through the gateway. Consequently, WirelessHART and ISA-100 are not suitable for the use in automated fast industrial process and robotics, which similarly to emerging cyber-physical applications in transportation, health-care, augmented reality support for maintenance works, virtual reality, education and culture that set high demands on underlying wireless connectivity solution. These applications require much more stringent requirements, such as low latency, high reliability and security, which warrant a paradigm shift from reactive and centralized networks towards massive, low latency, ultra-reliable and proactive networks. With the emergence of the fifth generation (5G) wireless networks, not only is the increase in mobile broadband targeted, but also the support of various previous mentioned used cases with ensuring ultra-reliable and low-latency communication (URLLC). The seminar will be focused on exploring new models supporting network slicing since it could be one of the appropriate solutions to meet the above mentioned requirements through allowing operator to partition network in a structured, elastic, scalable and automated manner
The talk is part of a series of seminars given by PhD students and researchers of our Department within the ICT area.
The goal of the seminars is to provide an overview on ongoing research activities, highlight common interests and explore emerging possibilities for collaboration between different research areas.
