Title: DISTRIBUTED LEAKY BUCKET BASED MULTI-MODEM SCHEDULER FOR MULTIMEDIA STREAMS
Abstract:
Systems, methods, and devices of the various embodiments provide a multipath communication scheduler for an in-vehicle computing device, such as a vehicle's autonomous driving system, vehicle's telematics unit, vehicle's control system, etc. In various embodiments, a distributed leaky bucket based scheduler for an in-vehicle computing device may assign packets for transport to a plurality of modems based at least in part on the determined delivery delays. In various embodiments, delivery delays may be determined based on leaky bucket levels, burst sizes, delivery rates, and end to end delay estimates for each of the plurality of modems. In various embodiments, the scheduler may be one of a plurality of schedulers each associated with a separate stream of packets assigned to the plurality of modems and the leaky bucket levels may be determined on a per stream basis.
