应我方邀请，英国阿斯顿大学（Aston University）工程与应用科学学院（the School of Engineering & Applied Science）的Xiaohong Peng博士将于12月13日来我校做专题学术讲座，报告的具体安排如下：
报告题目：Internet of Vehicles（车联网）
报告摘要：Connected vehicles will pave the way for supporting various applications for road safety, smart and green transportation, location-dependent services, and in-vehicle Internet access. The rapidly increasing number of vehicles in large cities is responsible for traffic congestion and the consequences in terms of huge economic cost and environmental problems. Connected vehicle solutions using wireless communications and networking technologies are very promising to alleviate traffic congestions and improve road safety for autonomous as well as man-controlled driving. These solutions will also contribute to the development of intelligent transportation systems under the framework of smart city. This seminar will discuss the challenges as vehicles become more autonomous, and why wireless communications technologies in terms vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) and vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) are vital for maintaining the connectivity required for autonomous vehicles. We will also examine how a Vehicle Cloud can support the systematic implementation of services in the vehicular network.
