Invited Talk






 Dr. Kyeong-Pyo Kang

   Deputy Director in Research and Development of u-Transportaion Core Technology,

   Dept. of Advanced Transportation Technology Research Center,

   The Korea Transport Institute, South Korea(ROK)



 The advent of ubiquitous society is expected to provide users with various information and services without any limitations of time and space. There is no doubt that a future transportation system should play a key role in the ubiquitous society.

 However, the current transportation systems represented by the intelligent transportation systems (ITS) have timing and spatial restrictions since most users can get the information or service only when and where the required ITS technology is available. This may be a critical limitation under the ubiquitous society, requiring new concepts of transportation systems and technologies.

 Our project is proposed to research and develop core technologies of the ubiquitous Transportation (u-T) Systems, and also to prove their potential and feasible performances. Under the u-TSN(u-T sensor network) in u-T systems, transportation information and services can be provided without any limitations of time, place, device, content, or network. Based on those integrated systems, the u-T Systems is expected to make it possible for all individual users to make any trips, by playing substantial roles in communicating transportation information and services between vehicle and vehicle(V2V), vehicle and infra(V2I), and infra and center.



 Dr. Kang received the Ph.D. degree in transportation engineering at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, University of Maryland, College Park, USA. His research interests include research and development of advanced ITS technologies for highway transportation operations and managements. His research papers have been published in main transportation related journals, such as Intelligent Transportation Systems, Journal of Transportation Research Record, and IEEE Transactions on Intelligent Transportation Systems. He has also been listed in Who's Who in America 61st Edition in 2007. He is currently working as a Research Associate in Advanced Transportation Technology Research Center at the Korea Transport Institute. His main works are to plan and manage national R&D projects, and also directly to research and develop advanced transportation technologies for the future.



Aim & Scope

Vehicular communication systems have now gained popularity and importance. New technical challenges have evolved that demand research and investigations. Globally, automobiles are indispensable for connecting people, delivering goods and services and commuting from one place to another. Car industries are of great importance in Asia, Europe, USA and the rest of the world. Car makers will be key players in car telematics. Much research remain to be done to bring alive the vision of future intelligent vehicular applications, which will be supported by vehicular communications and networks. Consumer telematic technologies will be needed to enable drivers to exploit the advantages of next generation intelligent transportation systems.


IEEE IVCS 2009 serves as a leading forum to bring together researchers and engineers in both academia and industry to exchange ideas, share experiences, and report original works about all aspects of car consumer telematics, communications, networking, security and services. The main purpose is to promote discussions of research and relevant activities in the design of architectures, algorithms, and applications for intelligent vehicular communication environments. IEEE IVCS 2009 will also address some leading standardization efforts (802.11p, p1609, TIA TR 48, CALM, etc). We also welcome papers describing work in progress.

        ITS car-2-car networks

        ITS car-2-roadside communications

        MAC, routing, QoS, addressing, multicast, TCP protocols
