|March 2020 - December 2024
Purpose and goal
New applications of artificial intelligence, augmented reality and collaborative smart cyber-physical systems require a new paradigm where local computing power - so called edge computing systems, enable real-time solutions that contribute to an economically and environmentally sustainable industry. TECoSA brings together KTH experts from relevant fields and partners from several industrial domains to create a long-term multidisciplinary research and innovation environment with a focus on secure, safe and predictable edge computing systems and applications.
Expected results and effects
TECoSA has the goal to create a dynamic multidisciplinary research environment on trustworthy edge computing systems relevant for multiple industrial domains. Outcomes include scientific results, open source and trained persons on edge computing systems modeling, resource management, machine learning, lightweight security, and architecting. TECoSA will systematically foster education and knowledge transfer, expecting to contribute to Swedish competitiveness in industrial digitalization in terms of R&D efficiency, and new and more cost-efficient products/services.
Planned approach and implementation
TECoSA brings together a strong composition of complementary partners relating both to research and industrial domain competences. To achieve the desired critical mass, the TECoSA strategy has been explicitly designed to accomplish active collaboration among its stakeholders, across disciplines and domains. Projects are used to structure the research with strong ties to industrial use-cases, drawing upon their common challenges. Collaboration will also be spurred within TECoSA through a knowledge exchange, testbeds, and co-location, and internationally through mobility.
