Through increasing bandwidth and decreasing latency haptic communication will soon be feasible.
The vision of a tactile internet will become reality.
In this project we study applications for this type of communication, for example in robotics, smart cities or cat-2car communication.
We mainly focus on wireless multi-hop networks.
The the main goals of this project are
(i) to develop models to predict latency behavior,
(ii) research new protocols for haptic communication and
(iii) propose new approaches to handle the highly dynamic and unpredictable behavior of such networks.
