Vehicular Communications and Networking: The Gateway to Connected Mobility

Abstract: Vehicular communications and networking is an area of significant importance in our increasingly connected and mobile world. In the past decade, this area has gained significant attention from both industry and academia for its potential of ensuring road safety, improving transportation efficiency and of enhancing travel quality. Vehicular environments are inherently challenging with doubly selective physical channels, constrained radio spectrum bandwidth resources, and constantly changing network connectivity and topology. As such, research in this area is essential for bringing to reality the many demanding vehicular applications that consist of the gateway towards the ultimate connected mobility. In this talk, I will introduce fundamentals of vehicular channels, and various practical communications and networking techniques that we particularly developed for such channels. Challenges and opportunities in this field will also be discussed to stimulate future research and development.

Dr. Liuqing Yang received her Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, in 2004. She is presently a Professor with Colorado State University. Her general interests are in signal processing with applications to communications, networking and power systems – subjects on which she has published more than 250 journal and conference papers, 4 book chapters and 2 books. Dr. Yang was the recipient of the Best Dissertation Award in the Physical Sciences & Engineering from the University of Minnesota in 2004, the Best Paper Award at the IEEE ICUWB’06, ICCC’13, ITSC’14, Globecom’14, and ICC’16, the ONR Young Investigator Program (YIP) award in 2007, and the NSF Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) award in 2009. She has served as an active reviewer for more than 10 journals, as TPC chair/member for a number of conferences, and as an associate editor for IEEE Transactions on Communications, IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications, IEEE Transactions on Intelligent Transportation Systems, IEEE Intelligent Systems, and PHYCOM: Physical Communication. Dr. Yang is an IEEE Fellow, and has been the co-chair of the Mobile Communication Networks technical committee of the IEEE ITSS since 2006.
