Guoqiang Mao. From Vehicular Networks to IoT for Smart Roads: How a Communication Engineer Can Help Solve Transportation Problems (Invited Talk). In 2nd Workshop on Fog Computing and the IoT (Fog-IoT 2020). Open Access Series in Informatics (OASIcs), Volume 80, p. 2:1, Schloss Dagstuhl – Leibniz-Zentrum für Informatik (2020)


Intelligent transportation system (ITS) is an important development that applies advanced sensing, communication, big data analysis and control technologies to ground transportation in order to improve safety, mobility and efficiency. This talk will begin with a brief introduction to our work in vehicular networks, which started more than ten years ago. As we delve deeper into vehicular networks and interact more frequently with transportation stakeholders, we realize that ITS is a truly cross-disciplinary area, in order for vehicular networks to achieve its desired impact, we need to think beyond the traditional communication domain, and start to ponder the deeper-level questions of what fundamental changes can be brought by advanced sensing and communication techniques to transportation and how the applications of advanced sensing and communication techniques can help solve crucial transportation problems. To this end, we will introduce our more recent work of developing advanced IoT technology to transform our roads into smart roads, which in the shorter term, make our roads safer and more efficient while providing the fine-grained real-time traffic information for traffic management; in the longer term, provide the much-needed road infrastructure support for the future booming CAV revolution.
