Project Group on Vehicular Networking

L.079.07002, Winter 2015/2016 and Summer 2016



Contents

This project group is being offered to complement our "Master Seminar" series, each issue of which treats current topics in the context of active research domains.

Learning Outcome

In the course of the project group, attendants will refine their skills of quickly familiarizing themselves with an active research process, investigating new concepts in a small group of students.

Course details

This master course will be held in English and all the course material is available in English.

Topics

This year, we focus on vehicular networks. Our primary research interests are focused on information dissemination techniques and protocol design covering both real-time safety applications as well as large-scale traffic information systems.

In this project group, we aim at developing a completely new communication protocol for the exchange of information among cars using the new IEEE 802.11p protocol stack. This protocol should be able to support a set of application demands ranging from hard real-time requirements as needed to support platooning, i.e., automated driving with very short distances between the vehicles, as well as bulk data transmissions, e.g., for cooperative downloads of music or video files from the Internet.

We plan to design and to investigate this new protocol in small groups that build the overall team working on the project. First investigations will be done using a simulation framework but we also aim for a proof of concept study on the road.
