The REINDEER project will develop a new smart connect-compute platform with a capacity that is scalable to quasi-infinite, and that offers perceived zero latency and interaction with an extremely high number of embedded devices. It will thereto develop “RadioWeaves” technology, a new wireless access infrastructure consisting of a fabric of distributed radio, computing, and storage resources. RadioWeaves can be deployed as panels mounted on walls and ceilings. It brings a large number of antennas and intelligence close to devices offering consistently excellent service at minimal transmit power and making very efficient usage of network bandwidth and energy. Technologically, RadioWeaves advance the ideas of large-scale intelligent surfaces and cell-free wireless access, two theoretical concepts that bear great promise to offer capabilities far beyond 5G networks. We will characterize channels based on measurements and develop distributed platform architectures to realize the great potential in actual deployments. We will develop protocols and algorithms to establish novel resilient interactive applications that require ‘real-time’ and ‘real-space’ cooperation, for future robotized industrial environments, immersive entertainment, and intuitive care, we will co-design focusing algorithms and protocols for enhanced interaction with many energy-neutral devices. REINDEER will provide experimental proof-of-concept in versatile testbeds. The project runs for 42 months and receives funding from the European Union under grant agreement number 101013425.
Our main objective is to develop smart connectivity technologies for resilient interactive experiences, with perceived zero latency and uninterrupted availability both in time and in location within the service operation. The REINDEER project will bring essential innovation to progress both the platform architectures and the protocols and algorithms to realize the great potential in actual deployments and to establish future interactive applications.
REINDEER will focus on the following objectives:
