Vehicular Networks Research on the MOVE


August 28, 2008

For the third year in a row, ECE Professor Ozan Tonguz will combine forces with General Motors researchers to host a workshop focusing on the development of inter/intra-vehicle and infrastructure-to-vehicle mobile mesh and ad hoc networks which are some of the most challenging and critical issues facing the Intelligent Transportation Systems industry.

The 2008 MOVE Workshop ((MObile Networking for Vehicular Environments) was held in April in Tuscon, AZ as part of INFOCOM 2008, Conference on Computer Communications sponsored by the IEEE Communications Society. The 2009 workshop will be part of INFOCOM 2009 in Rio de Janeiro, April 19-25.

The workshop this year was co-chaired by Tonguz, Dr. Varsha Sadekar and Dr. Cem Saraydar, both of General Motors, U.S. The organizing committee was made up of participants from other universities as well as GM, India. GM will continue to play a vital role in the 2009 workshop.

Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) have been developed to improve the safety, security and efficiency of the transportation systems and enable new mobile services and applications for the traveling public. These services apply rapidly emerging information technologies in vehicles and transportation infrastructures. The MOVE Workshop focused on vehicular ad hoc networks (VANET), vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I), infrastructure-to-vehicle (I2V), and vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communications and networking.

Papers from the spring workshop are published in INFOCOM MOVE'08 PROCEEDINGS as well as the IEEExplore database.
