Edge computing provides a new way to implement services with many unique advantages. While many edge computing solutions have been implemented within different network infrastructures, in this talk, we will explore the “roaming” edge of the Internet — in vehicles — where computing services are increasingly important, and appropriate edge capabilities need to be rolled out. We will describe a few vehicular applications often with significant needs of audio-visual processing, and describe an edge platform for vehicles to meet such goals.
