Introducing real-time fog computing in an industrial setting

The current research aim of Salman (ABB) and Vaclav (MDH) is to introduce a strict real-time behavior in the fog computing layer in an industrial setting (robot control). This will  enable the consolidation of the robot control functions in the fog computing layer and allows an easy extension of the industrial system (new robots, sensors, applications) and overcomes limitations of the current state of the practices (e.g., limited computation capacity of controllers, integration and synchronization with other systems etc).
