The ELASTIC project, recently funded by the European Union’s H2020 programme will develop a novel architecture for extreme-scale analytics. It will incorporate a novel elasticity concept to distribute computational resources across the compute continuum. The ELASTIC software architecture will form the technological basis for advanced mobility systems and autonomous transport networks.

The architecture will be used to deploy a smart mobility use-case in a real urban area within the City of Florence (Italy). The data generated by the tram network and trams vehicles themselves will be collected and processed using technologies such as embedded architectures, heterogeneous sensors, V2X connectivity and cloud resources.
