Network-Driven Transportation

Li-Shiuan Peh, Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science

With Moore’s Law scaling, we can already build chips with billions of transistors today. Mobile devices of the future will have compute power equivalent to today’s large servers in data centers. Combine that with rapid advances in pervasive wireless networking, we envision these mobile devices forming a collaborative computing fabric. With powerful devices on pedestrians, vehicles, and infrastructure, transportation in the future can leverage such a fabric for round-the-clock, pervasive, real-time sensing, computing and control. This talk will discuss how such a fabric can enable next-generation transportation services, before diving in on the systems challenges in building a collaborative computing fabric, and describing potential solutions we are working on.
