IoT 2017: Keynote 1, Virtual Vehicular Clouds as Enablers for City-Wide ICT (Dressler)
Sprache des Titels:
Cities around the world are currently under quick transition towards a low carbon environment, high quality of living, and resource efficient economy. Urban performance depends not only on the city?s endowment of hard infrastructure, but also on the availability and quality of knowledge communication and social infrastructure. There is a growing importance of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs), social and environmental capital in profiling the competitiveness of cities. Looking back at the last decade, one can observe enormous progress in the domain of vehicular networking. In this growing community, many ongoing activities focus on the design of communication protocols to support safety applications, intelligent navigation, and others. As a novel concept, vehicle micro clouds have been proposed that bridge the gap between fully distributed vehicular networks based on short range device to device communication and 4G+ based infrastructure for centralized solutions. We particularly shed light on the potentials of a vehicular cloud based on parked vehicles as a spatio-temporal network and storage infrastructure.
