Abstract: Contemporary control processes and methods in multi-scale, cyber-physical systems require precise data collection at various levels, timely transmission, and analysis involving large number of computing and storage elements connected within high-performance permissioned consensus networks. For example, in transport networks, resources tend to form multi-scale dynamical systems with diverse operational requirements, including data exchange policies and consensus protocols. Apart from designing complete topology, chaincodes and consensus logic, effective monitoring of the applications and infrastructure of such complex systems remains a research challenge. In this paper, we discuss important aspects of the data-intensive applications monitoring investigated in the frames of the ADAPT project.

We present highlights on the tool-sets, architectures and details on possible optimization approaches for monitoring data collection. We introduce a dynamic multi-scale monitoring system architecture with preliminary workflow model. It allows obtaining effective low-latency publish-subscribe matching of the dynamically varying monitoring tasks and executing machines.

Keywords: Logistics, transportation, decentralization, blockchain, monitoring systems, optimization, data-intensive systems, hybrid systems

ADAPT Meeting Klagenfurt

The first face-to-face ADAPT Meeting took place on September 30, 2021, in Klagenfurt. The consortium discussed important aspects of systems integration, current achievements and listed down strategies for validating and exploiting ADAPT use cases through real-world testing and external collaboration. The consortium further agreed to continue its ongoing efforts in disseminating scientific and technical results.

Radu Prodan @ ad astra – ADAPT – make transportation more efficient

Our project „ADAPT“ started in March 2021, during the most critical phase of the COVID-19 outbreak in Europe. The demand for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) from each country’s health care system has surpassed national stock amounts by far.
Learn more about it in an interview with Univ.-Prof. DI Dr. Radu Aurel Prodan in University Klagenfurt´s journal „ad astra“ (pdf).
