Autonomous robots to map venue at fog computing conference

September 13, 2018 // By Ally Winning
To demonstrate fog communications and interoperability, the organizers of the upcoming Fog World conference (Oct 1-3, 2018, San Francisco, CA) will use autonomous robots on the show floor to map the venue for attendees.

The mapping robots will traverse and map the venue floor in real-time to show fog in action, and that fog computing systems from various domains can communicate. Three different robotic domains will map the area.

The robots are equipped with LADAR (LAser Detection and Ranging) to collect data and SLAM (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping) algorithms located in the fog nodes’ gateways to generate the maps.The proof-of-concept robots are designed based on the OpenFog Consortium OpenFog Reference Architecture, which has been adopted in the IEEE standard for fog computing.

Fog World is scheduled for October 1-3 in San Francisco and will be produced by the OpenFog Consortium in collaboration with IEEE Communications Society. The event showcases fog computing use cases, architecture, standards, developments and research.
