Distributed Data Stream Processing in Heterogeneous Environments

Heterogeneous Data Streams, Distributed Fog and Edge Environments, IoT Data and Application Management


Dr. Steffen Zeuch and his Research Training Group concentrate on developing a data management system for the processing of heterogeneous data streams in distributed fog and edge environments. An explosion in both the number and types of connected devices will create novel data-driven applications in the near future. These applications require low-latency, location awareness, wide-spread geographical distribution, and real-time data processing on potentially millions of distributed data sources and potentially millions of simultaneous data processing operations. In some cases these applications have to operate under tight resource constraints with respect to bandwidth, processing power, and energy consumption. The aim is to design a data management system that unifies cloud, fog and sensor environments at an unprecedented scale. This system should host these environments on a unified platform and leverage the opportunities of the unified architecture for cross-paradigm data processing optimizations, to support emerging IoT applications. In order to achieve that, they will collaborate with the members of BIFOLD’s Data and Application Management for the Internet of Things Lab (IoT-Lab).
