Edge Cloud for AR/VR

The student will participate in the COSMOS project (http://cosmos-lab.org/) focusing on edge computing. Edge computing is an emerging paradigm that distributes computing resources closer to the end users. The need for timely response arises in both human and machine to machine applications (e.g., gaming AR, VR, autonomous drones, and industrial machinery). We are looking to evaluate VM migration and application response time for cloud computing. 

As part of the project, students will explore how to migrate Virtual Machines for edge cloud services. This will involve working with openstack, KVM, and Google cloud. Additional responsibilities can include design real-time object detection for AR application.
