Project description
Mobile Augmented Reality (MAR) is gaining popularity due to the wide adoption of mobile and wearable devices, and is one of the future applications targeted by 5G. MAR applications are strongly dependent on network connectivity and as such require a reliable infrastructure, especially in the case of interaction with the IoT world. In this project, we aim at developing such infrastructure at every layer of the network stack. The proposed infrastructure relies on 5G and WiFi for transmission, on top of which we will deploy an edge computing architecture to process and contextualize the MAR flow, and transport layer protocols to fully exploit the capabilities of 5G. These protocols will constantly interact with the application to provide seamless service. This edge architecture will also enable the deployment of security policies for authentication and access control, preventing sensitive information to be propagated further in the network.
