Cooperative Connected Intelligent Vehicles for Safer Road Transport
Road accidents and traffic congestion are serious problems for global transport systems. Connected vehicles and autonomous vehicles are two promising technologies that can improve road transport safe and efficiency, but they both have inherent shortcomings. One solution to address these shortcomings is cooperative connected intelligent vehicles, by which computing and sensing resources can be shared to improve driving safety and efficiency. In this talk the architecture and key technologies to enable cooperative connected intelligent vehicles will be introduced. The challenges in vehicle to everything (V2X) communication, cooperative edge computing, sensing and advanced driving will be discussed.
