Deliverable 3.2

First development and integration cycle of cloud infrastructure

This deliverable corresponds to Task 3.2: First development and integration cycle of
cloud infrastructure. It documents the cloud infrastructure that has been selected and
implemented within the project. Building on D3.1, this deliverable focuses on the Gitlab
source code management system, the Swift object store and OpenStack cloud
compute infrastructure functionality.


A Decentralized Trust-minimized Cloud Robotics Architecture

International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS) 2017 – Poster Track

We introduce a novel, decentralized architecture facilitating consensual, blockchain-secured computation and verification of data/knowledge. Through the integration of (i) a decentralized content-addressable storage system, (ii) a decentralized communication and time stamping server, and (iii) a decentralized computation module, it enables a scalable, transparent, and semantically interoperable cloud robotics ecosystem, capable of powering the emerging internet of robots.
