Efficient connectivity to mobile and digital services is crucial for numerous societal entities worldwide. The DRIVE project aims to investigate how latency-sensitive mobile services can be designed in the most optimized, secure, and energy-efficient way possible. Progress in this research area is crucial for many societal functions, such as autonomous driving, autonomous manufacturing, smart energy solutions, and remote surgery.
On Thursday 14 September, the subject of Computer Science held an open colloquium where Marco Neri from the telecommunication company Rohde & Schwarz talked about solutions and measurements related to 5G. Marco Neri has been involved in a joint research collaboration with Karlstad University since 2018. The research activity is one of the first collaborations in Europe to measure and analyse 5G mobile network performance.
Anonymity online is a highly topical subject that Rasmus Dahlberg has been researching for a long time. Ramus recently defended his doctoral thesis, “On Certificate Transparency Verification and Unlinkability of Websites Visited by Tor Users”, in Computer Science. With an academic background in computer engineering, Rasmus has both taken a doctorate, taught computer security and worked part-time at the companies Mullvad VPN and Glasklar Teknik.
Mobile networks are constantly evolving to enable improved throughput and low latency for applications. However, it has been shown that current standard congestion control algorithms can cause long delays in mobile networks due to over-allocation of buffers. In his thesis, Habtegebreil Kassaye Haile has investigated the performance of two possible solutions to this problem. The Internet is constantly evolving.
Cross Border Cyber Capacity, a three-year development project that aims to strengthen business development in the field of cyber security while increasing access to expertise and knowledge sharing, is now starting.
Edge computing is one of the drivers for future industries and a fundamental component in 5G networks, says Professor Javid Taheri. He has recently published a reference book on the subject, Edge Intelligence: From Theory to Practice.
The DRIVE sub-project 3 “Service optimization in federated edge platforms“ aims to design and develop artificial intelligence and machine learning based solutions to optimize the performance of augmented reality and virtual reality services on user-edge-cloud continuum platforms.
As part of the DRIVE project, real life measurements of 5G networks are now taking place in Rome, Italy, where two large mobile operators are up to proof in terms of coverage, connectivity, latency and throughput performance. In Dec. 2020 - Jan.

5G testing in progress

News » 2023-01-23
In the DRIVE project, a common test environment with industry partner Varnish Software has now been installed. The tests will measure the impact of different network connections on latency and bandwidth during video streaming. Since mid-December, latency and bandwidth testing has been ongoing in Karlstad University's 5G testbed. A server is connected to several network connections at the same time to compare their performance.
Digital Well Arena is a collaborative initiative on digital solutions for a healthier life, between the public sector, academia, civil society, entrepreneurs and business in Värmland. Recently, a workshop was held to make an inventory of the needs for digitalisation in the healthcare sector, what problems society and individuals would benefit from having solved.
On November 16-17, the DRIVE project held a two-day kick-off meeting at Karlstad University. The aim for the kick-off was to get the DRIVE and its subprojects officially started and to let all partner representatives and researchers meet face-to-face. - I am very excited to get started!
Computer Science at Karlstad university is welcoming Red Hat as a new partner within the DRIVE project. Red Hat is a global software company that provides Linux based open source software products to enterprises. This includes hybrid cloud infrastructure, middleware, agile integration, cloud-native application development, and management and automation solutions.
On September 13, the first DAMI workshop was held at Karlstad University. The aim for the workshop was to launch the DAMI working groups and disseminate the center and its activities to a wider audience. - The technical purpose of the workshop was to exchange information and ideas about recent developments in the area of digitalization for complex manufacturing, says Andreas Kassler, professor in computer science at Karlstad University.
The digitalisation of both industry and the wider society has only just begun. Communication technology and cellular networks are key factors for the digital transformation and will shape our lives in the coming decade. The project DRIVE has just been launched at Karlstad University and it will last eight years. Latency is the delay that occur in digital services when they are connected online.
The digitalisation of society has led to a constant pursuit of better performance. Through a new research project, Computer Science at Karlstad University wants to help speed up the process. Waiting for changes in the major operating systems Linux and Windows is time-consuming.
