报告题目: From Connected Vehicles to Internet-of-Things (IoT): Recent Advances in Communications and Networking
报告人：Dr. Zhengguo Sheng（TheUniversity of Sussex, UK.）
摘要: Modern cars feature embedded systems that monitor and manage all the critical sensors and actuators. The vehicle connectivity can be further extended with Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) technology, which allows cars to exchange that collected information and even act on it. Meanwhile, IoT will increase the pervasiveness of the Internet and the overall connectivity by integrating every “object” (e.g., sensors, smart phones, vehicles, infrastructures and external management platform) forming an intelligent system. Using the advanced communications and networking capabilities, the combination of vehicles and IoT have the potential to reach a wide range of objectives at more cost effective ways.
