1st Workshop on Safety and Security of Intelligent Vehicles (SSIV 2015) co-organized by LaSIGE member

António Casimiro is co-organizing the 1st Workshop on Safety and Security of Intelligent Vehicles (SSIV 2015), that will take place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on June 22, 2015, co-located with the DSN 2015 Conference. The goal of this workshop is to explore the challenges and innovative solutions regarding Intelligent Vehicles, considering the implications of security and real-time issues on safety and certification, which emerge when introducing networked, autonomous and cooperative functionalities.

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

Over the last years, aerial and ground vehicles as well as mobile robot systems have been receiving an increased number of electronic components, connected through wireless networks and running embedded software. This strong integration between dedicated computing devices, the physical environment and networking, composes a Cyber-Physical System (CPS). CPS have thus become part of common vehicles, accessible to everyone, such as automobiles or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Furthermore, as processing power increases and software becomes more sophisticated, these vehicles gain the ability to perform complex operations, becoming more autonomous, efficient, adaptable, comfortable, safe and usable. These are known as Intelligent Vehicles (IV).

The goal of this workshop is to explore the challenges and innovative solutions regarding Intelligent Vehicles, considering the implications of security and real-time issues on safety and certification, which emerge when introducing networked, autonomous and cooperative functionalities. It aims at joining together in an active debate, researchers and practitioners from several communities, namely dependability and security, real-time and embedded systems, intelligent transportation and mobile robot systems.
