1st IEEE Workshop on Automotive Networking and Applications
(AutoNet 2006)

Co-located with IEEE Globecom 2006
December 1, 2006 – San Francisco, CA, USA

Sensors, radars, cameras, navigation systems, and microprocessors are technologies already in-use in vehicles to support applications such as parking-assistance, lane-keeping, adaptive cruise-control, among others. These technologies have improved the levels of safety and comfort to drivers. Coupled with advances in wireless communications technologies, recently there have been significant efforts to enhance and integrate the communications technologies into the vehicle and transportation systems to enable safety and information applications. For example, significant industrial and governmental efforts are underway to push from “passive-safety” to “active-safety” by employing networking functions in vehicles and highway infrastructure.

With such communications and networking capabilities are integrated into vehicles and the infrastructure, not only safety but many other emerging applications can be supported for intelligent interactions with the transportation system, with other vehicles, and inside vehicles, to help with traffic management, vehicle diagnostics, mobile commerce, and much more. The increasing importance of vehicle and infrastructure communications is recognized by governments, highway authorities, automobile manufacturers and the academic community.

This one-day workshop intends to bring together researchers, professionals, and practitioners to discuss and address recent developments and challenges in deploying vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-with-infrastructure networking technologies, and their applications including safety-assistance and driver-convenience.

The tentative workshop agenda is as follows:
