Data is everywhere. Modern vehicles are equipped with hundreds of sophisticated sensors that offer necessary information for various functionalities. With vehicle connectivity, these vehicles can be exploited as mobile platforms to crowdsource real-time road and traffic information, which can be utilized to enhance the automotive decision-making systems for improved safety, efficient energy, and ride comfort.
In this talk, I will first present the Vehicle-to-Cloud-to-Vehicle framework and discuss its opportunities and challenges. The focus of the talk will be the exploitation of automotive vehicles to crowd-source road information for collaborative comfort and energy harvesting. I will also talk about recent work on online driver identification as well as integrating learning and control for efficient system identification and controls.
