In order to enable smart manufacturing and smart collaborations in the coming industrial internet-of-things, or Industry 4.0, a key element is to be able to utilize smart services residing in the cloud. The challenge however, is that the applications, such as collaborating industrial robots, autonomous cars, etc. require a very low and predictable end-to-end latency. With the coming 5G technology standard part of this puzzle will be solved since it will allow for a low-latency wireless connection to/from the cloud.

Our research targets the problem of ensuring that we have a sufficiently low and predictable end-to-end latency within the cloud. For instance, if your robot wants to use a network of smart services such as machine learning inference, control loops, analytics, etc. we develop theory that allows these services to automatically scale in order to guarantee you the necessary end-to-end latency.
