The Internet edge has evolved from a simple consumer of information and data to an eager producer feeding data at a societal scale. This change in paradigm embodies a burden for service providers in terms of constant maintenance and upgrade of infrastructure. The Edge Computing paradigm addresses the issue by shifting the computational burden at the network edge, gathering and analyzing data where it is produced. In this context, we present a feasibility analysis of an autonomous production site comprised of multiple mobile rovers and infrastructure endpoints, both involved in periodical information exchange under different duty cycling regimes. Infrastructure Access Points (APs) are positioned in-situ gathering and analyzing data, ensuring the system correct behavior. In this article, we discuss the experimental setup and the carried simulation analysis evidencing the tradeoffs that emerge.

Abstract

The Internet edge has evolved from a simple consumer of information and data to an eager producer feeding data at a societal scale. This change in paradigm embodies a burden for service providers in terms of constant maintenance and upgrade of infrastructure. The Edge Computing paradigm addresses the issue by shifting the computational burden at the network edge, gathering and analyzing data where it is produced. In this context, we present a feasibility analysis of an autonomous production site comprised of multiple mobile rovers and infrastructure endpoints, both involved in periodical information exchange under different duty cycling regimes. Infrastructure Access Points (APs) are positioned in-situ gathering and analyzing data, ensuring the system correct behavior. In this article, we discuss the experimental setup and the carried simulation analysis evidencing the tradeoffs that emerge.
