English abstract:
The deployment of cooperative ITS applications is
due to start as soon as 2015. Large investments in the roadside
unit (RSU) infrastructure will be necessary to create a dense
network and accommodate an increasing number of services,
leading to a discussion about the trade-off between distributed
processing and storage solutions on the RSU nodes and the
centralized alternative. A strictly central solution might not be
scalable, whereas the decentralized approach faces the problem
that load in the form of CPU and memory usage may be unequally
distributed among the nodes, causing performance bottlenecks on
some of the RSUs. This work presents a solution for this problem,
in form of a generic framework that balances the load between the
nodes and reduces in this way the RSU costs. The interactions are
based on a flexible coordination pattern for load balancing that is
realized using customizable containers provided by a distributed
systems middleware. This mechanism is applied to a probe data
collection scenario in which individual messages are aggregated
by RSU nodes, causing both CPU and memory load. Simulation
results illustrate the operation in dynamic load situations.
