ICCVE 2014: ISMB Focuses on Vehicular Networks (VANETs) and GLOVE project

3 November 2014

ISMB is participating in the 3rd International Conference on Connected Vehicles & Expo (ICCVE), that is held on November 3-7, 2014 in Vienna (Austria). The 5-day conference program features summits and industry forums, paper sessions and workshops, demos, exhibits, tutorials, and tours. Experts, practitioners and policy makers from all around the world are presenting the latest innovations and advances on connected vehicles, sharing the experience and insights, forecasting the trends and opportunities, and discussing the policy, economics and social implications.

Today Riccardo Scopigno, who is the head of the Multi-Layer Wireless Solutions Research Area and the coordinator of the Galileo Integrated Optimization with VANET Enhancements (GLOVE) FP7 project, is coordinating a tutorial on the integration of GNSS and vehicular communications architectures within the GLOVE project. Moreover he will present a paper on Channel Busy Ratio (CBR) metrics used by the Decentralized Congestion Control (DCC) solutions for scalability of vehicular networks (VANETs) on November 6th.

Within the framework of the tutorial, Davide Margaria (a researcher at the Navigation Technologies Area) is going to present the results of the GLOVE project with an overview on the status of satellite navigation systems (GNSS, with an emphasis on Galileo). He will highlight not only the problems encountered in urban areas, but also the opportunities provided by the integration with vehicular networks (VANETs), with a focus on the concept of Local Integrity which was proposed and developed during the GLOVE project.
