Title: AUGMENTING REALITY USING A SMALL CELL
Abstract:
A small cell may include a base station that may be co-located with an edge computing device. The edge computing device may be integrated within a small cell base station or be a physically separate module communicatively coupled to and in close proximity with the small cell base station that provides edge computing resources at the small cell. The edge computing device may communicate with input/output devices that are in hyper proximity to the small cell base station. The input/output devices may be capable of sensing aspects of the environment (e.g., via microphones, light sensors, cameras, thermometers, etc.) and providing a stimulus to an individual within hyper proximity to the input-output devices. The stimulus may be in response to or based on the environmental information gathered by the input-output devices.
