Towards a Platform for Smart City-Scale Cognitive Assistance Applications

IEEE Conference on Virtual Reality and 3D User Interfaces Abstracts and Workshops (VRW) 2021


This paper describes Cognitive AR, a system that seamlessly inter-faces AR devices with smart city environments. Edge computing nodes distributed throughout the city enable multi-user cognitive assistance applications that require (1) real-time sensor data from the environment, such as approaching cars, and (2) computing resources for low-latency video processing. We discuss three such applications to elicit requirements for a platform to support them, and present our system design.
