A PhD position is open for Sept. 2020
Title: Software Defined Industrial Internet of Things
Location: ICube lab (University of Strasbourg)
Topic: Critical applications now commonly use industrial networks to connect a large set of electronic devices. In particular, the detnet IETF working group aims at defining how to support real-time flows in the network. Resources are reserved to cope with the worst case (e.g. latest time of arrival). However, the Industry now aims to go further in this direction, by using wireless transmissions. However, the radio infrastructure is very time-dependent, and lossy, jeopardizing the reliability. Thus, we need to define how to provide a robust wireless infrastructure, able to predict the future, and to provision resources accordingly. We have to support multiple (more or less critical) applications executed on top of the same wireless infrastructure.
