ECE Colloquium Series – Professor Imran Hayee
March 2 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
As part of the *Eleanore Hale Wilson Lecture Series, ECE is proud to present:
Connected Vehicle Technology: What, Why and How?
Professor Imran Hayee
University of Minnesota – Duluth
Host: Professor Mos Kaveh
This seminar will highlight important technical aspects and developmental stages of dedicated short-range communication (DSRC) commonly known as connected vehicle technology. The emphasis will be given on what is DSRC and why it is a better choice than other competing wireless technologies to enable future generation traffic safety and mobility applications. The seminar will also evaluate how USDoT and car manufacturers envision the future of DSRC technology as well as highlight its various applications. Furthermore, the role of DSRC technology in enabling future generation vehicle automation will be explored. Various deployment hurdles, e.g., privacy and security issues will also be discussed.
