Project Summary
The FLOYD project aims to build a technology stack to deliver high-performance computing/network services to vehicles. The proposed solutions cover a significant part of the relevant functional domains, namely: (1) Orchestration of network slices for V2X; (2) proactive uninterrupted connectivity management strategies for vehicles; (3) new physical and MAC technologies for wireless communication; (4) eEdge, Ccloud, and hybrid computing approaches; (5) resource allocation strategies; (6) seamless mobility between public and non-public networks. The lines of technological research and development are guided by two main pillars: Artificial Intelligence and Platooning Applications. Underlying all technological development, a practical vehicle operations use case motivates both the developed applications, the test platform, testbed and demonstrator.

The project includes national industrial reference entities (Capgemini Engineering, Altice Labs) and research entities (CISTER, Telecommunications Institute, Vortex). As part of the partnership with CMU Portugal's Large Scale Projects program, the project also counts on the collaboration of the University of Carnegie Mellon, leveraging its technological knowledge in favor of the project's results, contributing to national specialization in the domains of 5G communications, SDN and Edge Computing serving vehicular customers.
