Course Description

Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) communication technologies have gained significant attention both in R&D and global standardization as part of the automotive industry’s answers to the problems of ever-growing traffic in our cities, increasing emission, rising number of accidents and the prognosticated spreading of autonomous and semi-autonomous vehicles on the ground and in the air as well. This prominent topic of automotive research and unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) design anticipates novel lifesaving security solutions and increased efficiency of transportation leading to substantially reduced environmental impact and serious economic and social benefits. Standardized V2X communication techniques are available providing the essential infrastructure for near future cooperative and autonomous vehicular solutions enabling the exchange and share of relevant information between vehicles, bikes, trains, UAVs, passengers, roadside units, and any other possible actors, eventually establishing a domain of cooperative awareness in transportation. The goal of the course is to introduce these widely accepted standards of V2X services, protocols and architectures, showcase their application areas, highlight current trends and ongoing efforts of inter-vehicle communication technologies.
