Course Description

This course deals with the Vehicular Networking including in-car networking and networking among cars as well as the design principles, modeling, and evaluation of Vehicular Networks (VANETs). We will focus on (1) applications, their requirements, and system components (2) enabling technologies and the standards, (3) data dissemination approaches, (4) tools and techniques for the performance evaluation of Vehicular Networks .

NEW on this year:

(1) Compared to the previous years, we will focus on
3GPP standards on 5G-V2X in addition to the ETSI and IEEE 1609 standards on 5.9GHz V2X communications.

(2) Course schedule has been updated includ
