With the burgeoning of  Edge Computing and 5G  technologies, we envision future vehicles will serve as a computing platform for a variety of services like advanced driver assistance system  (ADAS), remote real-time diagnostics, on-board entertainment, and a variety of third-party services, such as public safety.   

To realize the vision of connected and autonomous driving, researchers and practitioners in the community have to address several challenges, such as communication systems, data analytics platforms, novel algorithms and applications, and security, to name a  few. 

The second annual Metro  Detroit Workshop on Connected and Autonomous  Driving  (MetroCAD) aims to bring together the researchers and practitioners from the Metro Detroit area to address core challenges with vehicle connectivity and autonomous driving.  The goal is  to discuss and exchange ideas in this area and stimulate the collaboration between academia and industry partners. The topics include, but are not limited  to: 
  • Consumer services, including the Internet- and cloud-based digital services that add to the driving experience. 
  • Connected car packages, using advanced features to improve or help manage the car ’s operation and autonomous driving. 
  • Connected car data operation of various data sources and latency requirements. 
  • Artificial Intelligence approaches for control and coordination of traffic leveraging V2V  and  V2X  infrastructures. 

The workshop will include invited speakers, panels, and presentations. Researchers and practitioners on connected cars, autonomous driving, transportation systems and ride-sharing platforms are welcome to participate.
