presentation will consist of the following modules:
- Techniques for supporting wireless links between vehicles
and with road-side devices: The application of wireless connectivity to
vehicular platforms is nothing new. Roadside assistance services, localization
and navigation services, entertainment systems, and other forms of wireless
communications have been applied to vehicular systems for decades.
Nevertheless, new high bandwidth and low latency applications are now being
applied to vehicular platforms, and new solutions are required to meet these
new performance requirements. Standards such as IEEE 802.11p and 5G are several
options available to support vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure
(V2I) communications. This module will provide some insights on these solutions
and how they can be implemented to support new applications, such as
platooning, autonomous vehicles, and enhancing driver safety.
- Connectivity transforming traffic into the Vehicular
Internet of Things: Given the rise of the Internet of Things, many are
targeting the automotive industry as one application where vehicles on the road
can connect to the vehicular cloud to obtain information in order to enhance
their situational awareness. This Vehicular Internet of Things (VIoT) has the
potential to transform how are vehicles operate, especially with respect to
self-driving, powertrain control, and energy efficiency. In this module,
several insights on how vehicles across a traffic scenario will be connected in
order to enhance both local and global performance.
- Wireless connectivity in vehicular environments: Compared to
other transmission environments, vehicular wireless networks operating in
temporally and spatially dynamic topologies are very challenging to implement.
Given the requirements of these networks to possess low latency and high error
robustness, it is necessary to understand how these wireless transmissions
interact with the surrounding mobile environment. Fundamental concepts
regarding vehicular wireless channels, propagation characteristics, and
spectrum utilization will be presented to provide a general understanding of
