2023 International Workshop on the Cloud-Edge-IoT Continuum for Hyper-Distributed Applications and Services (CEICO)

With the adoption of robots growing in several industrial sectors (e.g., logistics, healthcare, agriculture) comes the experience that in "robotic applications" robots are but components of larger distributed systems and, despite their specific requirements and assumptions, should be integrated with the other elements.

This paper reports on the main challenges of building distributed robotic applications and discusses different approaches in which such applications are orchestrated and managed in the compute continuum from the Cloud to the Edge of the network.
