Title: Improving quality of service of the virtual reality traffic in wireless networks

Speaker: Mikhail Liubogoshchev, IITP RAS, MIPT

Abstract: Virtual Reality (VR) is extensively applied in various aspects of daily life. However, real-time rendering of a realistic VR is a computationally intensive task. Hence, rendering VR exclusively on the VR headsets requires equipping them with high-performance microchips, which increases both energy consumption and cost of the headsets. The concept of cloud VR aims to address this challenge. Here, VR is pre-rendered on a cloud server and then streamed via communication networks to the headset. The headset, in turn, displays the image according to the actual user position and notifies the server of the user’s actions. Such a service architecture requires the networks to reliably deliver high-intensity VR streams with minimal latency. This talk presents the main results of a Ph.D thesis dedicated to developing methods for enhancing the quality of service for VR traffic in wireless networks.

Bio: Mikhail Liubogoshchev is currently pursuing a Ph.D. degree in telecommunications under the supervision of Dr. Andrey Lyakhov. He has been a researcher at the Network Protocols Research Laboratory and Wireless Networks Lab (both Institute for Information Transmission, Russian Academy of Sciences) since 2016 and 2018, respectively. His research interests are devoted to 5G and beyond wireless systems, QoS-aware cross-layer optimization, and the ways to enable massive AR/VR deployment.
