IEEE ComSoc Supported Workshop | Future Mobility and Applications
Governments around the world have been supporting various measures of E-Mobility for both private and public transport, focusing on the contribution to UN future transport policy goals. Electric Vehicles (EVs) can eliminate road traffic-oriented pollutions and consequently could improve air quality, reduce noise pollution as well as carbon emissions. The number of EVs has witnessed significant growth in the last few years in the UK and some other countries the worlds including China, and US. The growing network of EV charging stations or infrastructure has potential security threat as the pluggable charging architecture provides vulnerable links for cyberattacks.
In is also noteworthy, that future vehicles are no longer stand-alone transportation medium due to the increasing advancements on Vehicle-to-Vehicle and Vehicle-to-Infrastructure communications. The Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CAV) are aimed towards sustainable developments in transportation by enhancing safety as well as efficiency. However, safety and efficiency-oriented sustainability in transportation via Internet of connected Vehicles comes with greater risk of online vehicle hijacking.
Another mobility technology, drones are becoming an increasingly familiar aspect of life and work in the UK and around the world nowadays. The UK government has already started geofencing a drone traffic manage program considering a huge global opportunity for countries that can successfully accommodate commercial drone operations worth £127bn globally. Smart traffic related software applications will be crucial for enabling next generation intelligent mobility systems via EV, CAV, and drones.
In this online workshop, expert panel members will be discussing on cutting edge research and development for enabling future transport and mobility systems.
