Connected Vehicles: Challenges and Possibilities

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Connected cars will transform our lives, influencing everything from the routes we take to work to how we find the closest “rock star” parking spot.
Connected technologies allow cars to talk to each other, as well as talk to the surrounding transportation infrastructure (traffic lights, satellites, sensors, etc.) using wireless technology. By providing real-time traffic, transit and parking data, these technologies open up opportunities to reduce traffic, accidents and pollution. At the same time, the new connectivity also brings to light new privacy and security issues that include the potential for car hackers.
National transportation and technology experts from the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin will break down the technologies, challenges and benefits of the connected car.
Presented by The University of Texas
