Abstract and Speaker Biography
- Title: Joint I2V and V2V Content Distribution with BATS Coding and Distributed Scheduling
Speaker: Dr. Yumeng Gao, Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore
Abstract: Vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communication technology enables vehicles to communicate with each other and connect to the roadside unit (RSU) for realizing a variety of ITS services. Content distribution assists vehicles in acquiring digital maps and entertainment materials which are distributed from an RSU. To overcome the unreliable transmissions due to lossy vehicular communication environment and possibly disconnected RSU cells, and reduce the total distribution latency, a joint I2V and V2V content distribution scheme will be discussed in this talk. The proposed scheme applies a batched sparse (BATS) code (a two-layer network code) and introduces a utility-based V2V data sharing algorithm with distributed scheduling to repair the packets lost in the I2V phase.
Biography: Yumeng Gao received the B.E. degree (Hons.) from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, in 2014. She is currently working toward the Ph.D. degree with a major in wireless communication in the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. Her research interests include vehicular ad-hoc networks, network coding and scheduling algorithm on the MAC layer.
- Title: DSRC safety message relaying at road intersection
Speaker: Dr. Hieu Nguyen, Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore
Abstract: Basic Safety Message (BSM) communication is an essential part of vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication to avoid accidents. In an urban road intersection, V2V communication is heavily obstructed due to the concrete buildings and hence the vehicles, resided in perpendicular streets, cannot communicate with each other. To improve the performance of V2V communication, we propose the relaying of BSM through a road side unit (RSU) while employing spatial filtering. This technique enables the communication between the vehicles of perpendicular streets and hence enhances the road safety.
Biography: Hieu Nguyen received the Ph.D. degree in electronics engineering from Chungbuk National University, Cheongju, Korea, in 2007. He is currently a Research Fellow with the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. His major research interests are signal processing for communications, multicarrier and multiple-antenna systems, and vehicular communications.
- Title: From Connected vehicles to Internet-of-Things (IoT): Recent Advances in Communications and Networking
Speaker: Dr. Zhengguo Sheng, University of Sussex, UK
Abstract: Modern cars feature embedded systems that monitor and manage all the critical sensors and actuators. The in-vehicle connectivity can be further extended with Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) technology, which allows cars to exchange that collected information and even act on it. Meanwhile, IoT will increase the pervasiveness of the Internet and the overall connectivity by integrating every “object” (e.g., sensors, smart phones, vehicles, infrastructures and external management platform) forming a fully connected system. By developing mission-critical and intelligent communications and networking capabilities, the combination of vehicles and IoT have the potential to reach a wide range of objectives at more cost effective ways.
Bio: Zhengguo Sheng has been a Senior lecturer in the Department of Engineering and Design at University of Sussex since 2018. He received his Ph.D. and M.S. with distinction at Imperial College London in 2011 and 2007, respectively, and his B.Sc. from the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (UESTC) in 2006. From 2013 to 2014, he was a research associate in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at University of British Columbia (UBC), Canada. From 2011 to 2013, he was with France Telecom Orange Labs as the senior researcher and project manager in M2M/IoT. During 2009, he also worked as a research intern with IBM T. J. Watson Research Center, USA, and U.S. Army Research Labs. His current research interests cover connected vehicles, Internet-of-Things (IoT), and cloud/edge computing. He has published over 100 journal and conference papers, 5 books, 1 patent and 2 standards contribution in OneM2M and OMA LWM2M. His current research works are funded by EPSRC, Royal Society, H2020 and University of Sussex. He is also the receipt of Emerging research award 2017 from University of Sussex.
