Call for Papers

Wireless vehicular communication systems constitute the backbone of future intelligent transportations systems (ITS). Currently, wireless communications inform the human driver. In the future, wireless communications will influence the movement of vehicles or allow the detection of vulnerable road users (VRU), including providing critical information required by networked automated road transports. Future ITS inter-networking automated vehicles with the goal of zero accidents have the potential to save more than 1 Mio. human lives and avoid 8 Mio. serious injuries worldwide every year.

Such future ITS applications yet rely on knowledge of the geographical positions of vehicles. Unfortunately, satellite-based positioning systems (e.g., GPS and Galileo) are unable to provide sufficiently accurate position information for many important applications and in certain challenging but common environments (e.g., urban canyons and tunnels).

Such short coming is expected to be compensated by combining traditional satellite systems with an innovative use of on-board sensing, infrastructure-based or even infrastructure-less cooperative wireless communication technologies (e.g., Wi-Fi, ITS-G5, UWB, Zigbee, Bluetooth, LTE, 5G mmWave,…) to produce advanced, highly-accurate positioning technologies for C-ITS.

The goal of the workshop is to solicit the development of cooperative vehicular communication systems enhancing the position information for future Smart Connected Cars. This workshop will bring together academic and industrial researchers to identify and discuss technical challenges and recent results related to cooperative communications and positioning. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Enhanced ranging capabilities of new wave forms for vehicular communications
  • Dependable communication technologies (e.g., ITS-G5/IEEE 802.11- 2012 OCB, LTE- ProSe, WiFi-Direct, Bluetooth/zigbee, VLC)
  • Cooperative radiolocation algorithms
  • Protocol extensions for dedicated V2V, V2I and V2IoT (Vehicle-to-Internet-of-Things) communications supporting
  • Distributed security and privacy mechanisms
  • High-Precision Mapping, Predictive Caching & Semantics
  • System & Component level simulation concepts
  • Key requirements (latency, reliability) and conformance tests for positioning service
  • Performance bounds and optimization
  • Field tests of vehicular communication
