A day for a remote controlled AGV: Latency and Troughput over VPN



Latency and throughput captured based on the amount of data required to provide velocity commands remotely for an AGV. Captured from Espoo (Helsinki area) to Amsterdam (cloud) and Melbourne (RMIT VxLAb).

Rate: 1 sample per minute
Units: milliseconds and kB/s for Latency and throughput respectively
Methodology: Latency captured as the average of 10 ping attempts. Throughput captured with a fixed data size of 20 kiloBytes in 10 transmissions (2 kB each).
Size: For Amsterdam and Melbourne, the data size is 1440 samples (1 day)
For Helsinki-Area the data size is 360 samples (6 hours)
Connection bandwidth in Helsinki: 50 kbps
Infrastructure in Amsterdam: Azure cloud, VM instance
Infrastructure in Melbourne: Dedicated server in RMIT VxLab
OS: Linux - Ubuntu 18
VPN: OpenVPN 2.4
