Speech Title: Future Mobility trends : new ways and vulnerabilities
Abstract: Since the last two decades, new ways of mobility were
developed. It started by an important modification of Vehicle with
the introduction of driving assistance and today with the self
driving (Uber cars, Google car). At the same time Aerial vehicle
were developed in order to reduce the traffic jams and to reduce the
distances. All those new mobility trends were possible due to the
development of new sensors and wireless connections. Wireless and
mobile networks have many advantages as easy deployment, user
mobility and provides network access to users regardless to their
locations. The most critical problems that arise in these networks
are on the resource allocations as the bandwidth is limited, the
propagation (multi-path, fading, distortion) and security since
communications are transmitted over radio waves.
In this keynote, new mobility trends will be presented with a focus on VANETs UAVs and Self driving cars. The vulnerabilities will be presented as well specifically the availability issues in those networks and architecture will be pointed out.
