MeshDapp: Blockchain-enabled Payment Systems
Short Info: In this project, we explore the technological feasibility of the blockchain-enabled edge platform within the CityLab testbed by evaluating business and sustainability models for wireless mesh networks that combine retail pricing with wholesale cost, profit distribution and return of investment. A technical enabler is a permissioned blockchain (Ethereum PoA) platform that provides desirable properties such as trusted data feeds (oracles) about traffic and resource consumption, robust and irreversible transaction records (distributed ledger), and inexorable outcomes (smart contracts).
PiCASSO: Information-centric Edge Computing Platform
Short Info: The goal of the PICASSO project is to assess the capability of a light edge computing platform that combines information-centric networking (ICN) and lightweight virtualization to facilitate both service delivery and service deployment in the challenging environment of Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs). The project results will be the evaluation of the PICASSO platform on edge devices that advances the scientific understanding and business opportunities in citywide WMNs
