Title: Mobile Communication/Computing Enhanced Intelligence in Connected and Autonomous Vehicles

Time: 15:00-15:15, Thursday, 10 August

Abstract: To improve transport efficiency and safety, connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs) leverage distinct sensing modalities and dynamic networking to break through the perception limitation of a single vehicle. CAV is an integration of two of the most promising automotive technologies, connected vehicles and autonomous vehicles. In CAV local perception from autonomous vehicles is shared with other vehicles and infrastructure to build a comprehensive perception of driving environments and cooperative driving. This talk will present our recent efforts to address several essential challenges in achieving CAV. In particular, this talk will introduce a spatial-temporal adaptive computation offloading solution for video semantic segmentation in CAV to address the bandwidth limitation issue, a mmwave automotive radar metric localization solution to address the Doppler effect issue, and a wireless-assisted vision SLAM solution to extend it to dark and textureless environments.

Bio: Wei Wang is currently a full professor with the School of Electronic Information and Communications, Huazhong University of Science and Technology.

Tramcar speed optimization system based on intelligent vehicle infrastructure cooperative cloud-speed-control algorithm

Time: 15:15-15:30, Thursday, 10 August

Abstract: Tramcars are economical, comfortable, energy-saving, and environmentally friendly, and will play an increasingly important role in the future transportation system. In theory, its signal system can be connected to traffic lights to prioritize tramcars. However, in reality, there are still many places where trams do not get priority at intersections, resulting in long waiting times and low efficiency. Some prioritized trams may also occupy traffic resources, causing negative feedback. The project aims to develop a vehicle-road-cloud decision-making system to optimize tram operations, including driving speed and station parking time, to reduce travel time and intersection traffic resources. The study will be based on the actual operation data of Jiaxing Tramcar Line 1 and build a cooperative vehicle infrastructure system. Step-by-step simulation testing, real car testing, trial operation, and practical application are planned. This project has high application value and scalability.

Bio: Jiang Zhu is a technology researcher in Yangtze Delta Region Institute of Tsinghua University, Zhejiang, specializing in the research and application of cloud control technology. He has experience in autonomous driving, vehicle perception and decision-making, intelligent connected vehicle testing, and vehicle-road cooperation technology. He led the BRT speed cloud-control system, achieving fully adaptive driving with speed control for 2 years. He also participated in the project "2021 Industrial Technology Basic Public Service Platform - Construction of Intelligent Connected Vehicle Control Basic Platform" responsible for the development of collaborative decision-making planning and control module for connected autonomous driving scenarios.
