Seminar When your life depends on the internet: from best effort internet to tactile internet


The tactile internet is heralded as the next generation of internet technology, with reaction times in the order of milliseconds. This equals the visual response time of humans, typically around 10 milliseconds. It will thus enable and drive applications that have much more humanlike reactions, for example in industrial automation, autonomous driving, city transportation systems, health and serious games. It will combine extremely low latency in combination with high availability, reliability, security and increased network capacity and throughput.

This visionary seminar will address some of the key enabling technologies for the tactile internet. It will be illustrated with two specific use cases: the need for tactile technologies in smart cities and in the automotive industry.
