Dr. Derek Caveney, Toyota Technical Center of Ann Arbor, MI, will present a seminar on Wednesday, July 11th at 4:00 p.m. in Room 1127 SEO.
The decreasing costs of embedded computing and communication technologies are moving transportation systems toward increased levels of autonomy. In the automotive domain, manufacturers are working together towards an exciting nearby future in which vehicles will be "connected" with each other and with the surrounding infrastructure through wireless networks. These vehicle networks will be capable of coordinating with each other, predicting and avoiding collisions, increasing traffic throughput, improving fuel efficiency, and optimizing routes in real-time. Human operators will be supported and assisted in their decisions, and they will be warned and guided toward safe and optimal behavior. In this talk, the current state of driving support technology is reviewed and research leading to the “connected” future is discussed.
Derek Caveney received the Bachelor degree in Applied Mathematics and Mechanical Engineering from Queen’s University (Canada) in 1999, and the Master and PhD degrees from the University of California, Berkeley in 2001 and 2004, respectively. He was a post-doctoral researcher in the Center for Collaborative Control of Unmanned Vehicles, Berkeley until September 2005. He then joined the Toyota Technical Center of Ann Arbor (MI), where he currently is Manager for research and advanced engineering in driver support systems. Dr. Caveney has several publications and patents on safety and efficiency in multi-vehicle systems.
