Titel: An automotive Data/Service description for vehicle-to-infrastructure communication in data-centric networks



Over the past decades, the functional scope of the automobile has adapted with the development of new technologies and the consumption behavior of travelers. The demand for new services is increasing with the technological advancements in the field of micro-controllers and mobile communication. Nowadays, car manufacturers and suppliers offer functions and interfaces to connect the vehicle to the Internet or to other computer infrastructures. Throughout its history, the architecture of the Internet was built on a host-centric communication model. However, the consumer behavior has changed into the interest of accessing information directly, irrespective of its physical location. It raises the questions:

Is it necessary to introduce a radical change of the Internet architecture to deliver information efficiently and wherever it is needed, e.g. as promised in information-centric networks (ICN)?

By introducing a future-oriented automotive use case scenario, the talk will point out the challenges (such as long life-cycles of vehicles) and requirements (such as accessibility, discoverability, …) to describe automotive services. Based on the use case, the first part of this talk provides a state-of-the-art analysis which introduces the possibilities to describe automotive services. The second part focuses on the dissemination of automotive data by providing an overview of information-centric networking approaches. The talk will conclude with the introduction of open research questions and future challenges to offer automotive service and their data in vehicular ad-hoc networks in a data-centric way.
