标题:分布式机器人系统中的区块链和多路访问边缘计算增强自治性

摘要】本概念性文件讨论了涉及机器人和车辆自主操作的不同方面在访问下一代移动网络时将如何变化。 5G及其它连接将无数的技术和行业融合在一起。通过网络切片的高带宽,低延迟边缘计算服务有可能在不同领域(包括机器人技术,自动驾驶汽车和物联网)中支持新颖的应用场景。尤其是,网络边缘的多租户应用程序将促进自动机器人和车辆的发展,这些机器人和车辆通过可靠的卸载服务提供计算资源和智能。将更多分布式网络体系结构与分布式机器人系统集成在一起,可以提高连接单元的智能程度和自治程度。我们认为,将服务框架与第三方集成整合在一起的最后一部分将是下一代低延迟区块链网络。区块链将提供一种透明,安全的方式来在多访问边缘计算(MEC)层上提供服务和管理资源。我们概述了MEC切片,分布式机器人系统和区块链技术方面的最新技术,以定义服务MEC层的框架,这将增强连接的机器人和车辆的自主运行。

Title: Enhancing Autonomy with Blockchain and Multi-Access Edge Computing in Distributed Robotic Systems

[abstract]  This conceptual paper discusses how different aspects involving the autonomous operation of robots and vehicles will change when they have access to next-generation mobile networks. 5G and beyond connectivity is bringing together a myriad of technologies and industries under its umbrella. High-bandwidth, low-latency edge computing services through network slicing have the potential to support novel application scenarios in different domains including robotics, autonomous vehicles, and the Internet of Things. In particular, multi-tenant applications at the edge of the network will boost the development of autonomous robots and vehicles offering computational resources and intelligence through reliable offloading services. The integration of more distributed network architectures with distributed robotic systems can increase the degree of intelligence and level of autonomy of connected units. We argue that the last piece to put together a services framework with third-party integration will be next-generation low-latency blockchain networks. Blockchains will enable a transparent and secure way of providing services and managing resources at the Multi-Access Edge Computing (MEC) layer. We overview the state-of-the-art in MEC slicing, distributed robotic systems and blockchain technology to define a framework for services the MEC layer that will enhance the autonomous operations of connected robots and vehicles.
