TECoSA core projects

Trustworthy Edge Systems

Edge computing is a new 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. Addressing issues caused by the large amount of data generated by an ever increasing amount of connected smart devices and sensors, edge-based systems can provide low response times, relieve network capacity and enhance privacy.

What are the challenges?

Edge computing can provide a variety of benefits to applications and system operators, but its wide-scale adoption requires edge computing-based systems to be trustworthy. Trustworthiness itself requires predictability, safety and security. TECoSA addresses the challenges involved in ensuring these trustworthiness properties, both for the edge computing infrastructure and for the applications and services served by the infrastructure.

Challenges involved in ensuring trustworthiness properties.

Five Nordic universities have developed a 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.  Editors are Professor Paul Pop, Technical University of Denmark and Professor Martin Törngren, KTH.
