Disruptive applications for mobile devices that can be enhanced by edge computing facilities are emerging, such as the Internet of Things, Immersive Media, and Connected and Autonomous Vehicles. In this context, Edge Computing is an architecture expected to meet mobility requirements imposed these applications. Edge Computing aims to introduce computing capabilities in the path between the user and the Cloud to execute tasks closer to where they are consumed, thus mitigating issues, such as latency, context awareness, and mobility support. The present project aims to create models to understand urban mobility and its impact on mobile applications provisioned at the edge. We aim to model different aspects of mobility and evaluate emerging classes of mobile applications. For this, a visit will be performed at the University of Bern to the Communication and Distributed Systems (CDS) group. Prof. Dr. Torsten Braun, head of the CDS group and supervisor of this visit, is a researcher with projects related to mobility analysis and Edge Computing. (AU)
