Professor Clarkson co-chairs the international virtual conference on autonomous driving
Dr Chen Liu, Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Clarkson, served as program co-chair for the Fourth International Conference on Connected and Autonomous Driving (MetroCAD 2021), which was held virtually on April 29, 2021.
With the rise of advanced computing and 5G technologies, future vehicles will serve as an computing platform for a variety of services such as autonomous driving, real-time remote diagnostics, security and third-party services, such as on-board entertainment. To realize the vision of connected and autonomous driving, researchers and practitioners in the community must address several challenges, such as communication systems, data analysis platforms, new algorithms and applications, security, to name a few.
The Fourth International Conference on Connected and Autonomous Driving brought together researchers and practitioners on connected cars, autonomous driving, transportation systems and carpooling platforms to address key challenges in vehicle connectivity and driving. autonomous driving.
Two keynote speakers, Reuben Sarkar (President and CEO, American Center for Mobility) and Tony Han (Founder and CEO, WeRide) took the floor, there was a panel discussion on “Autonomous driving , Where are we today?” and a presentation of nine technical documents divided into three sessions.
“The conference program was successful, achieving our goal of dynamic exchange of ideas in this hot research area and stimulating collaboration between universities and industry partners,” said Liu.
