The Eighth ACM International Workshop on VehiculAr Inter-NETworking
(VANET 2011)

Vehicle to Vehicle -- Vehicle to Roadside -- Vehicle to Internet


08:45  Welcome and Keynote
Connected Vehicles, the Internet of Things, and Fog Computing
Flavio Bonomi, Cisco Fellow, Vice President, Cisco Systems

Abstract - In this talk, we will illustrate how the evolving Connected Vehicle architecture and technology can be seen as one of the first and most exciting and motivating manifestations of the Internet of Things, the pervasive connectivity of small and big objects, from RFID tags to sensors to industrial floor machines and smart phones. Many relevant areas of technology are critical in the evolution of the Internet of Things, in general, and of the Connected Vehicle, in particular. Among these areas we will cast particular focus on Internet mobility, ad hoc networking, middleware and the more pervasive availability of computing and storage resources, close to the edge of the network, which we started referring to as "Fog Computing".

16:15 Panel discussion
Title - With mobil apps, still a need for DSRC?

Topic - The vehicular networking community has been working towards a DSRC-based V2V and V2R network for about 10 years. The investment in such infrastructure had been initially justified with a broad range of supported applications - from real-time traffic information, over in-car entertainment, to safety. While any significant DSRC deployment still has to see the light of day, dazzling innovation in mobile technology is providing many of these applications in the form of apps on mobile devices. This panel will examine how this rapid progress in mobile apps will impact vehicular communications.

Panelists -
Jörg Brakensiek, Research Leader, Nokia Research Center
Luca Delgrossi, Director Driver Assistance & Chassis Systems U.S., Mercedes-Benz R&D NA
Hannes Hartenstein, Professor, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology
