Project description

Providing traffic information services to road users in an efficient manner has become paramount as we move to a greener economy that requires city pollution levels to be decreased. At the same time, the envisaged (post-Covid) way of life is predicted to become increasingly dependent not only on efficient transportation of physical goods, but also on efficient provision of services based on the availability of data/information collected/delivered anywhere anytime via mobile devices. To realise these objectives, numerous challenges need to be overcome, being fast and real-time data processing one of the major problems to be faced when meeting the service requirements of Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) applications, since, in these applications, the data to be processed comes from a variety of fixed and moving devices such as cars, unmanned aerial vehicles and sensors. To address this challenge, this project seeks to assess the suitability of existing cloud resource management strategies for fulfilling the requirements of ITS services and propose improved strategies for managing storage and computing resources for ITS data processing, taking into account quality-of-service requirements. In other words, the project focuses on the management of the resources involved in data processing and information provision of ITS services, which requires efficiency and dynamicity, considering that these services are underpinned by a mobility driven infrastructure shared by numerous and varied devices.
