Self-Driving Vehicles: The Path Forward with LIDAR and V2x Technologies

According to some estimates, most vehicles on the roads will have driverless capability by 2050. To achieve this level of “full autonomy” with no human intervention, the vehicles must reach a high degree of sophistication with artificial machine intelligence augmented with various light and radio detection, ranging, localization and communication technologies for uninterrupted remote sensing and coverage. And in this ecosystem, V2x capability is certainly an indispensable complementary mechanism to sensors/LIDAR for supplemental system redundancy, added security, and greater awareness of the vehicle’s surroundings. In this talk, we will explore the vision for driverless vehicles and highlight topics related to communications, traffic and control. Much emphasis will be given to V2x communications fidelity in urban and suburban environments based on empirically supported measurements. Ongoing research work with Chalmers and industrial partners in Sweden, such as Volvo and Ericsson, will be discussed. 

Biography:

Mouhamed Abdulla received, respectively in 2003, 2006, and 2012, a B.Eng. degree (with Distinction) in Electrical Engineering (electronics), an M.Eng. degree in Aerospace Engineering (avionics), and a Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering (telecommunications) all at Concordia University. Since 2015, his research is funded by the European Commission as a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellow (H2020-MSCA-IF) which he is pursuing with the Department of Signals and Systems at Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden. Previously, he was an NSERC Postdoctoral Research Fellow with the University of Québec. Moreover, for nearly 7 years since 2003, he worked at IBM Canada Ltd. as a Senior Technical Specialist. Dr. Abdulla holds several awards, honors and recognition from international organizations, government, academia, and industry. His research interest include: self-driving vehicles, vehicular communications, space/satellite communications and mobile communications.
