About edge computing

Edge computing is a computing layer located between the devices/embedded systems and the cloud, at the “edge” of the network. Edge nodes are connected and each one can perform computations and provide storage for several devices/embedded systems, providing lower response times, relieve network capacity and enhance privacy.

Challenges involved in ensuring trustworthiness properties.

Addressing the challenges

Wide-scale adoption requires edge computing-based systems to be trustworthy. TECoSA addresses the challenges involved in ensuring predictability, safety and security, both for the edge computing infrastructure and for the applications and services served by the infrastructure.

Roadmap on Industrial IoT (IIoT)

IIoT is a key enabling technology for the green transition, bringing together several technological paradigms, from smart electronic components, 5G technologies, to AI and Edge Computing. Five Nordic universities have developed a roadmap on Industrial IoT (IIoT).
