IoV-VoI 2016

First International Workshop on
Internet of Vehicles and Vehicles of Internet

Co-located with ACM MobiHoc 2016

05 July 2016
Paderborn, Germany

Driving safety has been the focus of vehicular networking research and
development for the past 15 years. Standardization is mostly complete
with voluntary roll-out starting in Japan. Current generation is based
mostly on broadcasting of beacons.

As we go along, this first generation of vehicular networking
technologies will face challenges in addressing the needs of connected
vehicles and new applications that would go beyond the present day
systems. One such area is automated vehicles where the communication
needs will be twofold: One for cooperatively perceiving the environment,
and the other for collectively deciding on maneuvers. Such connected
autonomous vehicles would not only require reliable group
communications, but also would rely on group intelligence where they may
need to coordinate their actions (as a vehicular cloud) based on some
predefined rules.

Another emerging area is the view of cars as sensor platforms that
monitor the external environment (traffic, pollution, etc) as well as
the internal CAN bus and cabin activities. In this view the cars become
part of an IOV (Internet of Vehicles) and provide useful information not
only to other cars, but also to stakeholders in the Internet (e.g.,
automakers, insurance companies, communications services providers,
content providers, etc). In this view, one can exploit the information
capture, processing and communication resources not only of running
cars, but also of parked cars in the context of smart cities (e.g.,
using vehicles as data capture, storage and delivery instruments). The
information collected will be voluminous (big data) and will offer
important insight, through machine learning, on vehicular grid and smart
city operations. This expanded view will open up new opportunities as
well as new challenges in managing the highly amorphous vehicular
network structure and blending the “Internet of Vehicles” into the
“Vehicles of the Internet” by making vehicular resources an integral
part of the existing infrastructure. In other words, the Vehicular cloud
becomes an entity of its own right and cooperates with edge clouds and
Internet clouds.

Potential topics of the Workshop are:

- Vehicular clouds, group intelligence
- Software defined networking and virtualization for vehicles
- Heterogeneous/hybrid networking techniques for next generation
vehicular communications
- Collective perception techniques for automated vehicles
- Collective decision making for automated vehicles
- Services utilizing resources of vehicles
- Security for connected vehicles
- Positioning and addressing of vehicles
- Use of big data and cloud for automated vehicles
- IoV in the general context of IoT
- Mining big vehicular data for smart city services
- Use of cellular systems for vehicular networking
