Internet on Wheels: Vehicle-to-Vehicle Communication Technology

Lecture / Panel
For NYU Community

Speaker: Bo Yu, General Motors Research


In this talk, Dr. Bo Yu will give a short introduction to the cutting-edge ongoing research in General Motors Research Lab. Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) communication technology has the potential to improve the efficiency and safety of future highway systems. It has a wide variety of applications, including safety applications, efficiency applications, commercial applications, infotainment, etc. In the near future, V2V technology may radically change the way people live and work, and automotive electrification is taking us into an exciting new era of personal and public transportation. Dr. Bo Yu will first introduce some background knowledge of V2V communication, and then he will present his most recent research results on the study of transport protocols for V2V communication. This talk will also cover some interesting topics such as GM OnStar, WiFi Direct, Near Field Communication (NFC), etc.


Dr. Bo Yu received his PhD degree from Fudan University in 2007. He joined General Motors Research Lab in 2009. His research focuses on prototyping and experimental performance evaluation of novel ideas in Vehicle-to-Vehicle communications, In-vehicle Infotainment, Vehicular Social Networks, etc. Dr. Bo Yu's research results have been filed for a number of U.S. patents and published in more than 10 research papers in prestigious international conferences and journals. He was a reviewer for many IEEE/ACM Transaction journals and the web chair for ACM VANET 2010 conference.
