Internship | Model-based System Performance Engineering for CPS in Device-Edge-Cloud Continuum
Education typeuniversity (wo)
TypeInternship and graduation project
Hours a weekFulltime – 40
The TRANSACT project is a European project with the overarching goal of creating an architecture concept allowing standalone cyber-physical systems, such as interventional x-ray systems developed by Philips, to be distributed over the device-edge-cloud continuum. Distributing systems in this manner has benefits e.g. in terms of system evolvability and scalability, but creates new challenges in terms of performance, safety, and privacy. In TRANSACT, ESI (TNO) is collaborating with Philips to develop performance and safety concepts for distributing healthcare applications, such as 2D/3D image viewing, over the device and cloud. The insights learned by ESI are expected to be valuable to the bigger Dutch high-tech eco-system, as there is an increasing interest to make use of cloud services across domains.
What will be your role?
- An inventory, classification, and comparison of possibilities (and costs) for performance management and scaling from existing cloud providers, including Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and the TNO Cloud.
- Compare and select appropriate tools for instrumentation and monitoring, e.g. OpenTelemetry, to create visibility on the execution of a distributed application and its resource usage, both on the device and in the cloud.
- Develop method to use traces obtained by the instrumentation to automatically infer model of the executing distributed application that can be visualized and analyzed using existing tools.
- Develop a proof-of-concept demonstrator of a simple distributed application running in one or more of the evaluated cloud environments.
