Research focus: Edge-Cloud continuum
Optimized data processing from sensor to cloud
Both decentralized edge computing and centralized cloud computing are seamlessly integrated into the edge-cloud continuum. As such, digitalized industrial processes are used to automatically process data where it makes the most sense in terms of efficiency and economic viability: either in real time at the edge, close to end devices and sensors, or in a scalable manner in centralized data centers.
Researching and developing implementable technology solutions in the field of edge-cloud continuum is the central focus of research at Fraunhofer CCIT. The advantages of edge and cloud computing are combined to create a continuous data space in which computing power is automatically and dynamically shifted as needed, depending on the volume of data and latency requirements.
