Vehicle Communications and Applications Knowledge and Technology Transfer

This project is in partnership with AUTO21. This proposal is to help perform knowledge and technology transfer activities to implement the proposed techniques for vehicular communications on real systems and demonstrate their capabilities to our industrial partner. The techniques regard first a scalable solution for authentication and authorization of communicating entities in vehicular networks to secure exchanges of information while preserving the privacy of parties; and second an interference management medium access control for safety message transmission in vehicular networks. The technique reduces interference and increases the probability of delivery of safety messages. Two students, Etienne Coronado a Ph.D candidate at Université de Sherbrooke, and Behnam Hassanabadi at University of Toronto will have an internship with the industrial partner during 4 months to perform the knowledge and technology transfer activities.
