Student Research Team Create Prototype of Secure Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) Communications System 

Autonomous vehicles have the potential to reduce traffic accidents. However, without proper security features that would protect them from hackers who seek to control them remotely—or from roadside vandals who might confuse them by damaging roadway infrastructure such as stop signs—autonomous vehicles could still pose threats. With public safety in mind, many experts have called […]

How Can Autonomous Vehicles Be Protected Against Cyber Security Threats?

While autonomous vehicles are expected to be far less prone to accidents than driver-controlled vehicles once they’ve undergone substantial training, they may pose a more serious threat. Due to the over-the-air hardware and software updates these vehicles routinely require, experts believe they have the potential to easily come under attack from hackers who can use […]

Developments and Challenges Influencing the Advancement of 5G 

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic sweeping the globe has caused the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP), the international organization that creates telecommunication standards, to delay the release of two 5G standards. These standards will determine 5G requirements for standalone (SA) networks, industrial Internet of Things (IoT) devices, and vehicle-to-everything (V2X) systems. The standards, Rel-16 Stage 3 […]

Challenges and Solutions to Expanding the Internet of Things

Cities are getting bigger. Thanks to the Internet of Things (IoT), they’ll soon be getting smarter, too.  Over the next 30 years, urban areas are expected to add an estimated 2.5 billion people on average worldwide. As these cities grow, police wearables, open data, smart trash collection, and tools that monitor traffic levels and crowds […]
