W12: The 2nd International Workshop on 5G and Cooperative Autonomous Driving (5G Auto)

Primary tabs


With the emergence of highly automated and autonomous driving vehicles, rigorous requirements in terms of responsiveness, security, resiliency and scalability are needed to enable new services that improve efficiency and safety on the road.

The recent progress on 5G ultra reliable and low latency communications is paving the way to novel solutions that address these challenging requirements. To this end, a plethora of paradigms, (such as Fog/Multi-Access Edge computing, Software Defined Networking, Network Function Virtualization); emerging protocols for V2X communication (LTE-V, C-V2X, etc.) and advanced localisation/navigation systems (3D High Definition maps, Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) have been proposed or are still under development to support future 5G road safety use cases.

Therefore, in the path towards fully autonomous and safe coordinated driving, it is crucial to investigate how and up to which point the 5G paradigm, as an enabler of evolved vehicular services, is able to meet the requirements of autonomous driving, accommodate the emergency of new roles and behaviours of connected vehicles and handle the heterogeneity of new applications in terms of data rates, latency and hyper-connectivity.

In the spirit of ICC, this workshop aims at favoring a multidisciplinary, cross-layer perspective to 5G and autonomous cooperative driving, bringing together researchers, developers, and practitioners from academia and industry.

We invite paper submissions including, but not limited to the topics listed below :

- Use case requirements for autonomous vehicles - Big Data stream processing and analytics techniques
- Cellular vehicle-to-everything communication - HD dynamic mapping and accurate positioning
- Multi-Access Edge computing for Ultra-reliable and low-latency communication - ADAS systems for autonomous vehicles
- Simultaneous Localization and Mapping - Intrusion detection systems specific to autonomous vehicles
- Fog-based zero-time handover mechanisms - Security issues in 5G for autonomous cooperative driving
- Caching techniques for enabling ultra-low latency services - Named Data Networking (NDN) for autonomous vehicles
- SDN for autonomous driving management
