Abstract

Transportation systems are part of our society's critical I infrastructure and are expected to experience transformative changes as the Internet revolution unfolds. The automotive industry is a notable example: it has been undergoing disruptive transformations as vehicles transition from traditional unassisted driving to fully automated driving, and eventually to the self-driving model, Communication technology advancements such as support for vehicle-to-infrastructure (V21) and vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication have been one of the key enablers of next-generation transportation services, also known as Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS). However, ITS services and applications pose significant challenges to the underlying communication and network infrastructure due to their stringent low latency, reliability, scalability, and geographic decentralization requirements. The drive associated team proposal aims at addressing such challenges by: (1) developing a programmable network control plane that will dynamically adjust to current environmental conditions and network characteristics to support ITS' scalability, quality of service (QoS), and decentralization requirements, and (2) applying the proposed distributed network control plane framework to ITS services and applications, such as road hazard warning, autonomous- and self-driving vehicles, and passenger-centric services (e.g., infotainment and video streaming).
