Fog configuration for critical control applications

Host: Technical University of Denmark (DTU)Embedded Systems Engineering (ESE) section.

  • Main supervisor: Prof. Paul Pop, (contact person)
  • Co-supervisor: Prof. Jan Madsen,

Recent Posts:


  1. Support the virtualization of control needed for the IT/OT convergence
  2. Develop methods and tools for the configuration of the Fog Computing Platform for critical control applications, such that they have the same level of service as on a dedicated OT infrastructure.

Expected Results:

  • Evaluation and analysis report of the mechanisms introducing latencies and jitter that increase the worst-case delays in the network, and decrease the dependability
  • Methods and tools for the configuration of Fog Nodes and for the configuration of TSN switches
  • Analysis and optimization algorithms to maximize the QoC
  • Evaluation and integration of the methods and tools with TTTech’s tool flow.

Internship and collaboration:

  • TTTech (Dr. Silviu S. Craciunas)
  • Danfoss (Dr. Juha Kuusela)
