Work-04: Automotive IoT: Technology Trends, Enablers and Opportunities


The connected automotive is one of the most visible examples of Internet of Things (IoT) technology. Automotive IoT integrates diverse hardware and software components like sensors, driving control systems, infotainment devices, cloud and apps, to enable a variety of functionalities like augmented automotive perception, fleet management, and automotive data services. The automotive IoT eco-system is expanding fast to include automakers, automotive chip providers, system integrators, software providers and cloud services. In order to adapt to evolving IoT technologies, it becomes critical to assess the impact of IoT in automotive to create new value based on connectivity and data. It is an aim of this workshop to put together both technology and business innovations, as well as safety, privacy and regulatory advances, that are shaping future automotive IoT.


Within its scope, the workshop solicits papers from academic and industry identifying research, technological and business innovation challenges on the following topics:
  • Connected automotive architectures
  • V2X connectivity / 5G and 6G connectivity for automotive IoT
  • Cooperative and distributed approaches for automotive IoT sensing, decision-making and controls
  • AI-based automotive perception and autonomous decision-making
  • Machine learning for reliable autonomous mobility
  • Federated learning in automotive IoT
  • Validation and evaluation methods for automotive IoT systems
  • Privacy and security for automotive IoT
  • IoT business models for automotive IoT
  • Data-driven monetization for automotive IoT
  • Data-driven services for automotive IoT
  • Regulations and policies in automotive IoT
