Keynote – Connected Autonomous Vehicles for Enhancing Road Safety

Abstract: Modern vehicles are equipped with lots of sensors for measurement of vehicle operating conditions and the surrounding, including weather conditions, and can be a viewed as a web of sensors on wheels. They can sense a range of information about the vehicle, such as location, speed, braking intensity, road traction, etc., some of which can represent road weather conditions. Lots of crashes happen due to the driver being unware of the surrounding road weather conditions, such as icy patches and frozen pavement. By facilitating vehicles within an area to exchange information between themselves in real-time, the drivers can be instantly alerted about road hazards and possibly avoid potential crashes. The talk will discuss ways to increase the safety of drivers and thus reduce crashes resulting from adverse road weather conditions. This was achieved by disseminating, in real-time, the information collected by a vehicle to its surrounding vehicles using state-of-the-art wireless communications between vehicles. The information was also communicated to road side infrastructure to increase driver safety; for example, the duration of the traffic signals at a junction can be changed dynamically in response to current road weather conditions transmitted by vehicles in the surrounding area.

Mohammed Atiquzzaman

Mohammed Atiquzzaman obtained his M.S. and Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Electronics from the University of Manchester (UK) in 1984 and 1987, respectively. He currently holds the Edith J Kinney Gaylord Presidential professorship in the School of Computer Science at the University of Oklahoma. Dr. Atiquzzaman is the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Networks and Computer Applications, the founding Editor-in-Chief of Vehicular Communications, and serves/served on the editorial boards of many journals including IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing, IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications, and IEEE Communications Magazine. He chaired and co-chaired 53 conferences, IEEE Globecom and ICC, IEEE VTC and the SPIE Quality of Service over Next Generation Data Networks conferences. He was the panels co-chair of INFOCOM’05, and is/has been on the program committee of many conferences such as INFOCOM, Globecom, ICCCN, ICCIT, Local Computer Networks, and serves on the review panels at the National Science Foundation. Dr. Atiquzzaman received IEEE Communication Society's Fred W. Ellersick Prize, IEEE Distinguished Technical Achievement Award for contributions in switching and routing, IEEE Satellite Communications Technical Contribution Award, and NASA Group Achievement Award for "outstanding work to further NASA Glenn Research Center's effort in the area of Advanced Communications/Air Traffic Management's Fiber Optic Signal Distribution for Aeronautical Communications" project. He is the co-author of the book “Performance of TCP/IP over ATM networks” and has over 300 refereed publications, available at His current research interests are in the areas of Internet of Things, wireless and mobile networks, ad hoc networks, satellite networks, vehicular communications, and optical communications. His research has been funded by over $13M from National Science Foundation (NSF), National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), U.S. Air Force, Cisco, Honeywell, Oklahoma Department of Transportation and Oklahoma Highway Safety Office.
