Free 'Technology, Business and Regulation of the “Connected Car”' webinar

  • Dec 11, 2013 · 8:00 AM

Details and signup at

Presented by: Alison Chaiken, Mentor Graphics Embedded Software, and John Kenney, Toyota ITC.

Vehicular networking in both its vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) forms is a key enabler for improved collision avoidance and for the highly anticipated roll-out of autonomous navigation. 2013 has seen the release of preliminary results from field trials involving thousands of specially equipped vehicles in Germany (simTD) and the U.S. (Safety Pilot). The E.U. will install V2I devices in a corridor between Vienna and Rotterdam starting in 2015. Vendors have produced communication devices for roadside and in-vehicle applications, but software support from Linux kernel drivers to user-facing applications is at an early stage. The U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has allocated spectrum for the new Dedicated Short Range Communication (DSRC) service at 5.9 GHz that overlaps the European allocation, but is now considering giving permission for unlicensed devices, like Wi-Fi, to use the same band. IEEE, SAE, ETSI, and ISO are developing DSRC standards in conjunction with automotive groups like CAMP, the Car2Car Communications Consortium, and the Amsterdam Group. Last summer, the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board recommended a government requirement for installation of connected vehicle technologies on all newly manufactured highway vehicles. With all these developments, what hardware is applicable to vehicular networking? What roles will WiFi and LTE play? What kinds of safety and "infotainment" applications will V2X enable? What are the business opportunities for both hardware and software vendors, and where do technology gaps remain? Hear two experts from the automotive industry give a summary of the latest news.

What you will learn:
-Important Connected Car networking technologies & the state of their hardware and software development
-What networking protocols will Connected Cars use?
-Which companies are participating, and where are there opportunities for small businesses?
-How likely are government mandates, and how compatible are U.S., European and Asian standards?

Who should attend:
-Engineers and software developers who need to know more about how Connected Cars will differ from other networked devices
-Managers, entrepreneurs, analysts and investors who want to better understand recent developments in the Connected Car space.

Alison Chaiken: Member, technical staff, Mentor Embedded Software.
Alison's automotive technical work began with MeeGo-IVI at Nokia and has focused at Mentor on Linux kernel for Freescale i.MX6. Alison is a co-author of an IETF draft standard on geonetworking, and previously gave presentations about Automotive Internet at the 2013 Embedded Linux Conference and the 2013 Automotive Linux Summit. She comes into contact with Bay Area IVI innovators as the organizer of the 900+-member Silicon Automotive Open Source Group.

Dr. John B. Kenney earned his BS and Ph.D. degrees, both in Electrical Engineering, from the University of Notre Dame. He received the MSEE degree from Stanford University. He is a Principal Researcher at the Toyota InfoTechnology Center in Mountain View, CA, USA, where he leads a vehicular networking research team. He represents Toyota in cooperative projects between the Vehicle Safety Communications (VSC) consortium and the US Department of Transportation. He also represents Toyota in DSRC-related standards groups at IEEE, SAE, and ETSI. His contributions to IEEE[masked] and 1609 standards development have been recognized by the IEEE. He served as Co-General Chair of the ACM VANET Workshops in 2011 and 2012, and is Co-organizer of the First International Workshop on Smart Vehicles in 2014. He recently testified on 5.9 GHz spectrum sharing before the US House Energy and Commerce subcommittee on Communication and Technology. His current research is in wireless congestion control, performance of vehicular networks, and spectrum sharing technologies.

    Thanks raju. My audio sure does sound awful: sorry. I guess the mic was too far from my mouth, but the headset wasn't adjustable in that dimension.
