International Conference on Embedded Computer Systems: Architectures, MOdeling and Simulation – Samos XVI

SafeCOP will be represented at Samos XVI with a discussion around Safe Cooperative CPS.
A conference paper has just been accepted, which deals with a key use case in the SafeCOP project: the vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) cooperation for the traffic management scenario.

According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, in fact, up to 80% of automobile accidents can be prevented with improved vehicle connectivity, using Vehicle-to-Anything (V2X) communications. Additionally, it is projected that over 10% of the driving time is wasted in traffic jam, 12% of urban traffic is created by vehicles trying to park, and up to 17% of urban fuel is wasted at traffic lights when there is no cross-traffic. Cooperative-Intelligent Transportation Systems (C-ITS) can be very useful when situations such as construction site warnings and traffic congestion in highways caused by an accident or road damage are encountered.

The authors suggest that, with vehicles connected together and connected with roadside infrastructure, all of these problems can be mitigated.
The paper deals with two main problems linked to the safety assurances that vehicles relying on V2X communication require:

  1. The necessity to develop innovative and efficient solutions to increase the security and safety of these systems
  2. The necessity to standardize the security assurance procedures, and to use prototypes and demonstrator to reassure people about security concerns and foster their wide utilization
