REsilient INteractive applications through hyper Diversity in Energy Efficient RadioWeaves technology

Objective

The REINDEER project will develop a new smart connect-compute platform with a capacity that is scalable to quasi-infinite, and that offers perceived zero latency and interaction with an extremely high number of embedded devices. It will thereto develop “RadioWeaves” technology, a new wireless access infrastructure consisting of a fabric of distributed radio, computing, and storage resources. RadioWeaves can be deployed as panels mounted on walls and ceilings. It brings a large number of antennas and intelligence close to devices offering consistently excellent service at minimal transmit power and making very efficient usage of network bandwidth and energy. Technologically, RadioWeaves advance the ideas of large-scale intelligent surfaces and cell-free wireless access, two theoretical concepts that bear great promise to offer capabilities far beyond 5G networks.

We will characterize channels based on measurements and develop distributed platform architectures to realize the great potential in actual deployments. We will develop protocols and algorithms to establish novel resilient interactive applications that require ‘real-time’ and ‘real-space’ cooperation, for future robotized industrial environments, immersive entertainment, and intuitive care, We will co-design focusing algorithms and protocols for enhanced interaction with many energy-neutral devices. REINDEER will provide experimental proof-of-concept in versatile testbeds.

Industrial partners fostering innovation team up with academic experts in the REINDEER consortium. The project will reinforce the technological leadership in Europe and create new business opportunities in beyond 5G infrastructure and network operation both licensed and unlicensed bands, the focused vertical domains, and in private networks. We will execute an ambitious communication plan towards industry, pre-standardisation, and a broad public, disseminate through high-impact publications, and organize topical trainings.
