HomeEdge is a robust, reliable and intelligent home edge computing open source framework and ecosystem running on a variety of devices at home. To accelerate the deployment of the edge computing services ecosystem successfully, the Home Edge Project provides users with an interoperable, flexible, and scalable edge computing services platform with a set of APIs that can also run with libraries and runtimes.
All the devices (TVs, fridges, washing machines etc.) connected into a Home Edge Network are considered Home Edge devices and are assigned to Home Edge Nodes by the Home Edge Orchestrator. The Orchestrator continuous scans the home network looking for new devices and when it finds one, the device is assigned to a node or a new node is created by the Orchestrator.
