Brief Abstract

Recent advances in vehicular communication technologies, along with better perception and sensing, promise significant performance improvement and cost reduction for active safety systems.  Yet, the mass adoption and deployment of communication-based safety systems has not progressed at the same rate as the technology itself. In this inaugural webinar, challenges related to standardization, application development and the role of infrastructure of these technologies as well as their recent advances such as CV2X will be discussed. We argue that vehicular safety communications should be made future-proof and decoupled from applications. The objective is to allow for advances in vehicular communications, safety applications and sensing technologies to be decoupled and to happen without disrupting the design and deployment processes. Emphasizing the role of cooperative perception, we discuss how an information-centric application and communication design could be an ideal choice for a future-proof vehicle safety ecosystem.
