Title: INTER-VEHICLES COMMUNICATION: A NEW FRONTIER OF ADHOC NETWORKING
The constant increase in the number of cars on the roads calls for
effective means to improve road safety, transport efficiency, and
passengers' comfort. To this end, the research community, the
industries and the governments all over the world are investing
much of their efforts and money in the development of integrated
Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) based on wireless
communication networks. Several national/international projects
have been recently launched around the world: DSRC, VSC, VII in
USA, C2CCC in Europe, AVS in Japan and Network on Wheels in
Germany, to name a few.
The road safety paradigm is moving from a passive one (air bags,
ESP, etc.) to an active one, where sensors, radars, cameras,
navigation systems, and microprocessors, commonly installed in
vehicles, are integrated with wireless communication systems to
support applications such as parking-assistance, lane-keeping,
adaptive cruise-control, and many others. Vehicular Ad hoc networks
(VANETs) can efficiently warn and inform drivers via direct
wireless vehicle to vehicle communications, eventually reducing
reaction time and information availability limitation.
The creation of high-performance, highly reliable, highly scalable,
and secure Vehicular Ad hoc NETworks (VANETs) poses extraordinary
challenges related to the channel access, the routing information,
the control of highly variable network topologies, the design of
flexible middleware solutions to effectively support the
application layer. In this context, the talk will highlight the
current state of the art of VANETs over-viewing ongoing projects
and standardization efforts. Moreover, we will also point out open
issues on the design of communication protocols for VANETs, discuss
on the directions for further research in this field.
Luigi Fratta received the Doctorate in Electrical Engineering from the Politecnico di Milano, Milano, Italy, in 1966.
From 1967 to 1970 he worked at the Laboratory of Electrical Communications, Politecnico di Milano. As a Research Assistant at the Department of Computer Science, University of California, Los Angeles, he participated in data network design under the ARPA project from 1970 to 1971. From November 1975 to September 1976 he was at the Computer Science Department of the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center, Yorktown Heights, NY, working on modeling analysis and optimization techniques for teleprocessing systems. In 1979 he was a Visiting Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Hawaii. In the summer of 1981 he was at the Computer Science Department, IBM Research Center, San Josť, CA, working on local area networks. During the summers of 1983, 1989 and 1992 he was with the Research in Distributed Processing Group, Department of Computer Science, U.C.L.A., working on fiber optic local area networks. During the summer of 1986 he was with Bell Communication Research working on metropolitan area networks. In 1994 he has been Visiting Scientist at NEC Network Research Lab, Japan. In 2000 he has been Visiting Professor at the University of Canterbury, New Zealand. Since 1980 he is a Full Professor at the Dipartimento di Elettronica e Informazione of the Politecnico di Milano. His current research interests include computer communication networks, packet switching networks, multiple access systems, modeling and performance evaluation of communication systems, local area networks, wireless cellular systems and integrated services over IP networks.
Dr. Fratta is Fellow of IEEE.
