HIT SEIE Summer Academic Activities IV: Invited Talk by Prof. Xuemin (Sherman) Shen

Harbin Institute of Technology Advanced Communications Technologies Forum 2017

Title:Connected Vehicles for Modern Transportation Systems

Date and Time: 8:30—10:00, Auguest 8, 2017



Abstract:Modern society depends on faster, safer, and environment friendly transportation system. Vehicular communications network in terms of vehicle to vehicle, vehicle to infrastructure, vehicle to pedestrian, vehicle to cloud, and vehicle to sensor, provides a solution to modern transportation. In this talk, we first introduce the all connected vehicles. We then present the challenges and scientific research issues. of vehicular communications network. As examples, we show how to utilize mobility characteristics of vehicles to derive the achievable asymptotic throughput capacity in VANETs, and how to develop the charging strategies based on mobility of electric vehicles to improve the electricity utility, in order to approach load capacities of charging stations in VANET-enhanced smart grid. We conclude the talk by discuss the future autonomous driving.
