Falko Dressler, "Towards the Tactile Internet: Low Latency Communications in Connected Cars," Tutorial, ACM SIGCOMM 2017, Los Angeles, CA, August 25, 2017.


In this tutorial lecture, we discuss the challenges and opportunities of the Tactile Internet and its fundamental concepts. Early 5G research was mainly about big data pipes and further increasing possible data rates in cellular as well as access networks. This situation changes. Current research towards 5G networks and the Tactile Internet focuses primarily on two core aspects: providing ultra-low latency as well as ultra-high reliability. Among many others, distributed control is considered a target application for such networking technologies. In the scope of this tutorial, we concentrate on connected cars as a prominent example - other include industry automation and smart city operations. In this scenario, short range radio broadcast as well as direct machine to machine communication will play a major role. The Tactile Internet activities are now coordinated by the IEEE Communications Society Tactile Internet Sub-Committee.
