ELASTIC will produce a novel software architecture to distribute resources from edge to cloud. The software includes the development of a new concept of elasticity, ensuring smooth performance across the compute continuum in an innovative fog-computing environment. The project aims to significantly increase the data analytics capabilities of extreme-scale big-data workloads, while fulfilling multiple non-functional requirements, including real time, energy efficiency, security and unstable communications. 

ELASTIC includes a smart-mobility use case, deploying a sensor network to collect the data from the tram network of Florence (Italy). The trams will feature advanced embedded architectures, V21 connectivity, heterogeneous sensors and access to cloud resources, improving public/private transport interaction and allowing the creation of advanced driving assistance applications.

The ELASTIC project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the grant agreement No 825473
