[RAMO Seminar] V2X-Based Vehicular Positioning: Opportunities, Challenges, and Future Direction
Speaker: Seung-Woo Ko, Assistant Professor / Korea Maritime and Ocean University, Korea Venue: Online by Zoom Date & time: Thursday 28th May 2020, 14:00~15:00.
Abstract: Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) creates many new opportunities in the area of wireless communications, while its feasibility on enabling vehicular positioning (VP) has not been fully explored despite its importance for autonomous driving. This article aims at investigating whether V2X can help VP from different perspectives. We first explain V2X’s critical advantages over other technologies (e.g., GPS, RADAR, LIDAR, and camera) and suggest new scenarios of V2X-based VP. Then, we review the state-of-the-art positioning techniques discussed in different standardizations and point out their limitations. Lastly, some promising research directions for V2X-based VP are presented, which contribute to realizing fully autonomous driving by overcoming the current obstacles.
Bio: Seung-Woo Ko received the B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees at the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Yonsei University, Korea, in 2006, 2007, and 2013, respectively. Since Mar. 2019, he has been an assistant professor in the Division of Electronics and Electrical Information Engineering at Korea Maritime and Ocean University (KMOU). Before joining KMOU, He had been a senior researcher in LG Electronics, Korea from 2013 to 2014, and a postdoctoral researcher at Yonsei University, Korea in 2015 and The University of Kong Kong from 2016 to 2018. His research interests focus on intelligent wireless communications & networking, with special emphasis on mobile edge computing & learning, V2X and vehicular positioning.
