Embedded Real-Time Operating Systems
Vehicular networks that wirelessly connect vehicles, infrastructure, and pedestrians will be the communication backbone for future transportation.
Networked smart, semi-automatic and fully autonomous vehicles will rely on shared information, distributed intelligence, and joint actions to optimize traffic/logistics, reduce pollution, and increase road safety. However, great dynamics, continuously changing network topolgies, and heterogeneous devices make dependable communication hard and demand for self-organizing radio protocols at all layers of the communication stack.
This project aims on researching the foundations and practical application of self-organizing radio protocols for massively dynamic networks of mobile devices. Thus, nature-inspired techniques for medium acces control are equally important as managing multi-hop communication.
