Building Modern Transportation System with KubeEdge, How We Made It

Transportation is one of the most important industries of edge computing, building a highly distributed, edge-cloud collaborative platform to leverage new applications and services for modern transportation has been a hot topic these years.

To deal with massive edge apps & nodes deployment, enabling edge autonomy, and to simplify heterogeneous devices management, KubeEdge was introduced as a key part to the whole system.

In this talk Kevin and Huan will introduce:

  1. Benefits and challenges of adopting cloud-native technologies in the transportation industry.
  2. Edge - cloud collaborative architecture with KubeEdge inside: trade-off between scalability, extensibility, and complexity.
  3. Real-world use cases:
    • Managing 100,000 edge nodes on China's Highway with KubeEdge: most challenging barriers and how they were resolved.
    • How KubeEdge simplified Vehicle-Cloud collaboration, helping software-defined cars to achieve rapid software upgradation & iteration.
