ECE Professor Ozan Tonguz was interviewed by IEEE Spectrum, one of the world's leading engineering and scientific magazines, on his vehicular networks research. Tonguz founded the CMU startup Virtual Traffic Lights, LLC, which works to solve a wide range of transportation problems by using vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communications paradigms based on the emerging Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) technology. In the interview, Tonguz discusses his work to explore networking power from parked cars, as well as the challenges facing his field. Tonguz also recently published an article, "Parked Cars are Excellent Roadside Units," in the February issue of the IEEE Transactions on Intelligent Transportation Systems. Read more.
