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 ​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.
