We are very excited to be back with a new event! The 10th Athenian Papers We Love meetup will feature Kakia Panagidi and Kostis Gerakos presenting on The use of Kafka Platform for Mobile IOT
• Kakia Panagidi and Kostis Gerakos presenting on The use of Kafka Platform for Mobile IOT
This presentation aims to describe the adoption of a highly efficient pub/sub middleware platform for unmanned mobile vehicles - UxVs (i.e., mobile vehicles of different categories) in real-world scenarios.
After the introduction of the designed architecture, the insights of applying a distributed middleware providing 'experimentation as a service' in an Internet-of-Things (IoT) environment are discussed.
It is worth noting that the discussed solution is invariant to the robotic platforms and scalable to new installations and additions in both software and hardware components. Quantitative findings presented show that the proposed scheme is efficient and can control UxVs in real time experiments.
