Internet of Vehicles: Towards a SMART CITY

Wednesday 3 January 2018

Mini Auditorium, CV Raman


Internet of Vehicles (IoV) is an emerging area that spans multiple disciplines such as the transport domain, communication and computation networks, and the power grid system. Consequently, realizing the IoV demands a tight interconnection and synergy among several enabling technologies such as software defined networks, big data, mobile edge computing, etc. It is anticipated that the IoV will be a key enabling component for the smart cities. Two of the parallel aspects of Internet of Vehicles in the context of a smart city are:
 - The role of electric vehicles in a smart grid, which addresses several issues such as green and sustainable energy and the distributed future market of electricity, trade, and
 - Vehicular communication and mobile Internet as key enabling technologies for intelligent transport systems.
This talk will bre more focused on resource allocation, models and optimization problems for vehicular communication and for electricity trade among electric vehicles.

Speaker's Bio

Sabita Maharjan, PhD is a Senior Research Scientist in Simula Research Laboratory, Norway, and an Associate Professor in University of Oslo, Norway. Dr. Maharjan received her Ph.D. degree in Networks and Distributed Systems from University of Oslo, and Simula Research Laboratory, Norway, in 2013. She worked as a Research Engineer in Institute for Infocomm Research (I2R), Singapore in 2010. She was a Visiting Scholar at Zhejiang Univeristy (ZU), Hangzhou, China in 2011, and a Visiting Research Collaborator in University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign (UIUC) in 2012. Dr. Maharjan has investigated a wide range of research problems focusing specically on resource optimization and management, system modeling and architecture, and reliability and security analysis, in the following areas:
 - Energy efficient and ultra-reliable communications leading to 5G
 - Smart Grid: demand response management, renewable energy integration, vehicle-­to-­grid (V2G)
Her current research interests include wireless networks, machine-­to-­machine communications, Internet of vehicles, vehicle safety, software defined wireless networking, and network security and resilience. She serves as the guest editor for IET Cyber Physical Systems. She has served/currently serves as the TPC chair or TPC member for several international conferences such as IEEE IWQoS, IEEE INFOCOM, IEEE ICC, IEEE GLOBECOM, IEEE VTC, IEEE WICON, and IEEE WCNC.
